The Exchange is pleased to announce the awardees for the 2020 round of the Teaching and Learning Fund. This year, we have awarded over £50,000 in funding for 21 projects. We received a wide range of projects from combining art and neuroscience to introducing techniques for resilience. The wide variety of proposals made it incredibly challenging to select those awarded.
As the Exchange further developed our remit during 2019, we were able to introduce new award strands and invest more in teaching and learning excellence across the Colleges:
- Attainment (new)
- Curious, creative curricula
- Digital Learning
- Employability and Enterprise
- Environmental Sustainability (new)
The Application Process
The administration of the Fund was further development by the Digital Learning, Arts Education and Web Services teams who worked to improve the user experience by moving from a paper to an online multimedia application using Microsoft Sharepoint Lists.
We hosted in-person and online proposal support workshops where potential applicants met with Exchange staff to share their ideas, ask questions and receive advice on how to form a proposal.
We introduced a period of revision for projects that showed strong potential but that needed a little more refining or consideration. This allowed the applicants to discuss their proposals with Exchange staff and receive advice on how to structure them to further enhance student learning and experience.
For awardees, we hosted two Ethics workshops where we examined British Educational Research Association’s (BERA) ‘Ethical Guidelines for Education Research’ and the responsibilities to various participants when conducting research of any form at UAL.
