UCL ChangeMakers

15 staff- student partnership projects have received funding as part of UCL ChangeMaker’s and represented Faculties across UCL.  The scheme aims to supports staff and students in running or getting involved in a project to innovate, enhance or improve the learning experience at UCL.   

The panel were particularly interested in proposals that aligned with the Connected Curriculum Initiative, UCL’s institutional approach to research-based education, and other aspects of the UCL Education Strategy.  

Abbie King, UCL ChangeMakers Manager, said: “The submissions for our June 2017 deadline were extremely high quality and ranged from undergraduate students running events to showcase internships in the sciences to postgraduate taught students developing peer mentoring sessions and research students running journal clubs open up a dialogue with undergraduates about their research."
