Funding available for teaching equipment and projects

31 October 2012

The Vice-Provost (Education) has invited applications for the annual Teaching Equipment Fund and Teaching Innovations Grant schemes.

The Teaching Equipment Fund allows departments to apply for money towards equipment that will be used primarily for teaching and the enhancement of the student experience. Departments are expected to contribute 50% towards any equipment bought and funding is only available for items not already ordered or purchased.

The Teaching Innovations Grant offers individuals or departments up to £5,000 towards projects aimed at improving teaching, learning or assessment. These could, for example, make use of UCL’s technology or object-based learning opportunities.

Teaching Innovations Grants are available either as start-up grants, which help departments create new schemes, or extension grants, which enable staff to develop existing projects.

The deadline for applications to both the Teaching Equipment Fund and the Teaching Innovations Grant is Friday 18 January 2013.
