Fund launched to help share teaching innovation
A new fund has been launched to help share innovation in student education across the University.
Applications are open for a new LITE fund
The Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE) Transferring Innovation Fund provides £500 to help implement a new system, or examples of effective practice, in another School, Faculty or service at Leeds.
The money can be spent by the sharer and adopter on equipment, consumables, catering, travel, student interns or research assistant time.
It is expected that successful bids will be collaborative projects and partners should not be from the same School or service.
Professor Tina Overton, Director at LITE, said: The sharing of innovation in education is essential if we are not to continually reinvent the wheel and if we are going to achieve maximum impact.
This new LITE fund has been created to support that important process. So, if you would like to share your innovation in education with other colleagues at the University, or if you have you seen something innovative in education at Leeds that you would like to adapt to your own context, please do consider applying for this new funding.
Projects that include a contribution from the student body in an advisory or partnership role are particularly welcome.
