Teaching and learning grant applications deadline announced

14 November 2011

Two teaching grant schemes are now open for applications. Ngaio Goll explains how to apply - and when by.

Students using audio equipment

UCL’s Institutional Learning & Teaching Strategy (2010-15) and the recently published Council White Paper set out a long-term institutional commitment to enhancing the quality of the education that we provide to our students.

The Vice-Provost (Education)’s office operates an annual grants round to support departments to invest in their teaching and learning activities, either by enabling the purchase of new equipment, or by facilitating pilots of new approaches to teaching and learning.

The closing date for receipt of applications to either scheme is Friday 13 January 2012.

For more information, visit the schemes' dedicated information pages (links above) or contact Ngaio Goll in the VP (Education)’s office by emailing or calling 020 3108 5040.
