2018 University Teaching Development Grants

Friday, 4 August 2017 10:12pm

The closing date for applications is 5:00pm on Monday 2 October 2017.

The Committee for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching (CALT) has funds available for University Teaching Development Grants in 2018.

The primary purpose of University Teaching Development Grants is to foster active development of teaching in order to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in the University.

Grants are to be used for project work such as planning, implementing and evaluating a curriculum intervention of some kind (e.g. new course design, further development of an existing course or programme, incorporating the use of technology in teaching etc.).

Grants may also be used to fund ‘strategic projects’. In 2018 the focus of strategic projects is initiatives related to implementing the recommendations, affirmations and enhancements in the University’s AQA Cycle 5 Academic Audit Report.


Any academic staff member (0.2 FTE and above), whose duties include significant teaching and who has been actively teaching in a university for at least one year, may apply for University Teaching Development Grants.

Developing your application

Intending applicants are strongly advised to contact Associate Professor Clinton Golding (Acting Head of HEDC) or Dr Sarah Stein (Director of Distance Learning) at least by the beginning of September and preferably sooner. Clinton will arrange for a member of academic staff in HEDC to work with the applicant to develop the application. Applicants need not accept this support, but, if they do, the process will seek to situate the project in its research field, ensure that planned outcomes are realistic, and assist with project design.


The normal maximum for any individual monetary grant is $20,000 per project.

Closing Date for Applications

The closing date for 2018 applications is 5:00pm on Monday 2 October 2017. Late applications will not be accepted.
