    In 2017, Ashesi University began an initiative called Education Collaborative which seeks to work collectively with other African universities to transform higher education on the continent. (educationcollab.ashesi.edu.gh/about-us/ ) They are currently developing an online GVV-based program for educators and practitioners and students.

The program was launched in 2020 and follow-on programs for different practice areas have been developed and offered, as well as GVV Masters Facilitators Program for partners and managers.

    • Dr. Abiola Makinwa, of The Hague University of Applied Sciences, has developed an online training program, "The IntegrityDLM (Digital Learning Module)" which adapts the GVV pedagogy for its teaching tools. The IntegrityDLM is available at https://integritydlm.net/ . Students develop moral "reminders", "moral commitments" and "moral reference points" to encourage moral intentionality, as well as, an explicit moral vocabulary. Students create Integrity Toolkits comprising of Pyramids of Core Values; values-based Personal Codes of Conduct and Integrity Checklists. By pre-scripting, developing and practicing responses to ethical challenges in advance, students develop "integrity awareness" and "integrity assertiveness." The framing of the competences is supported by research that an individuals' moral choices can be affected, "by emphasizing or raising their moral reference points."
    • Professor Ros Berne at the University of Virginia School of Engineering worked with GVV to customize the Giving Voice to Values MOOC from Coursera for engineering educators.
