Teaching Innovation Awards 2018 now open
Do you want to make your teaching and learning more engaging, inspiring and innovative? Would you like to resolve an issue in teaching or learning in your discipline? Tackle issues of working in a group or team?
The 2018 Teaching Innovation Awards are now open for applications so this may be the chance to secure funding to support your work.
Open to anyone in the institution - staff, students, colleagues in the Students’ Union and professional services - these awards seek to enhance teaching and students’ academic experience.
All submissions go before a panel of colleagues drawn from across the University and LSU.
Awards range from £3,000 to £5,000 and are generally made to fund action research projects.
Previous winners have looked at improving the University’s use of: LEARN, feedback, new technologies in teaching, and student-led learning as well as ways of teaching practical skills and critical thinking.
This year’s awards are also open to previous winners who need further support developing their original application.
The awards are administered by the Centre for Academic Practice on behalf of the University.
Applications will remain open until 28 February 2018. However, applicants will need to discuss, develop and submit their ideas before then.
