HEA funding opportunities


Two possible funding opportunities from the Higher Education Academy with emphasis being placed on:

  • assessment and feedback
  • flexible learning 

Teaching Development Grants - Departmental Scheme (http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/tdg/departmental)

The Departmental grant scheme invites proposals from single departments in HEIs that encourage cooperation between colleagues to support the enhancement of learning and teaching.
Successful applications will demonstrate team impact across a department; there will be scope for long-term impact, and provision for evaluation and dissemination will be clearly defined. The hosting institution will be expected to contribute funds towards the project.
Applications are invited from any academic departments in HEA-subscribing institutions in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Proposals submitted under the Departmental scheme may request up to £30,000 from the Higher Education Academy. Projects will run for fifteen months.
The key themes for the 2012/13 round are assessment and feedback andflexible learning. 75 per cent of funding will be allocated to projects in these two thematic areas. 25 per cent of funding will be dedicated to an open call for innovative pedagogic projects. These projects could build on previous pedagogic work, or they could seek to develop a new area of work entirely.
Call opens – Tuesday 28 August 2012
Deadline for submissions – 5:00pm on Thursday 27 September 2012
Projects commence – TBC
Networking event for successful applicants – Thursday 10 January 2013
