New resources for curriculum review teams

Our colleagues in the Educational Development Unit have helped to develop a list of the key topics and questions to consider as part of curriculum review, in order to help guide your discussions. You will find these on the strategy webpages (internal only).

If you’ve not already done so, please see our Resources page for a range of useful material; this will be updated on a regular basis.

Call for funding to support pedagogy transformation

The second call for pedagogy transformation funding is now open. Funding is available for both Department-wide initiatives (Stream A) and for smaller scale initiatives (Stream B). The guidance has been updated, so please review this carefully before preparing your submission.

The deadline for this round of funding is 2 March 2018, and further calls for funding will take place on a rolling basis over the next three years. Please note however that all future funding calls will be for support in Stream A only.

The guidance and application forms are available to download now.

The Excellence Fund for Learning and Teaching Innovation

Applications for the next round of funding from the Excellence Fund for Learning and Teaching Innovation Fund are now open.

One of the four pillars of the Learning and Teaching Strategy is the fostering of an inclusive and diverse community, where different backgrounds and cultures in staff and students are cherished and celebrated, and their different cultural experiences and identities are embraced. In making our teaching and our curricula more inclusive, we aim to support staff and students to turn diverse backgrounds and cultures into an opportunity for mutual learning, taking advantage of different experiences and perspectives.

In support of this strategic aim, funds will be awarded to support projects which stimulate the development of more inclusive learning and teaching, with a focus on the development of inclusive curriculum content and use of inclusive research and research concepts.

More information about the scheme, including information about the criteria and suggested topics and the application form, is available from the website.
