Teaching Development Grants from the HEA

See the latest opportunity from the HEA:

The Higher Education Academy is offering bid-based development grant funding to stimulate evidence-based research and encourage innovations in learning and teaching that have the potential for sector-wide impact.

 “Over the next year there will be a total of £1.5 million of funding available for individual grants, departmental grants and collaborative grants.

Phase One
The first phase begins with an open call for individual grant scheme bids. There is a total of £315,000 available in this phase with a maximum of £7,000 per project.

£28,000 is ring fenced for new academic staff (anyone with less than five years experience in a full time permanent post). A further £28,000 is ring fenced for HEA Fellows who have never had a teaching development grant before.

Bids are invited from anyone responsible for the student learning experience who is working in higher education institutions** in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland or England that subscribe to the Higher Education Academy. The themes for this call are:
– internationalisation
– employability.”

 ** I checked with the HEA and they confirmed that ‘HE in FE providers are eligible as long as it is linked to their HE partner in the delivery of their HE in FE provision’

Closing date for phase one bids is 15 June 2011.
