CLOSED - Education Partnership Funding 2018
The Education Partnership Fund was established in 2017 to support collaborative learning and teaching projects that investigate challenges faced by both universities, and lead to the development of innovative, evidence-based practices that support student learning. Five projects were established in this first round of funding.
The joint UEB has agreed to make up to a total of £250k available in 2018 to support a second round of the Education Partnership Fund.
In this round, bids are invited that address the challenges we face in delivering inclusive education and closing undergraduate attainment gaps. This is an area in where the pooling of our experience and expertise could be particularly helpful.
We are seeking to fund projects that address one or both of the following questions:
- What should ‘inclusive education’ in a contemporary research-intensive university look like and what are the implications?
- How can we explain and address UG attainment gaps?
The intention is to fund up to four projects to a total of £250k, so applicants should develop projects of sufficient ambition, scale, and potential impact. It is a condition of funding that project outcomes include evidenced-based recommendations that can impact on practice, and on-line guides to help staff translate the findings.
