BILT encourages all staff to undertake new innovations in their teaching. As well as providing funding through our Educational Enhancement Funds and Discretionary Seedcorn Funds and Learning Communities, we also encourage staff to apply for other funding opportunities.
You can find out more about internal funding opportunities (UoB only) by visiting the RED website. There is a full list of funding opportunities available via the Research Professional (UoB only) website.
BILT's Educational Enhancement Funds build upon the previously available University Teaching Fellowships and University Teaching Development Grants.
The purpose of these funds is to:
- draw in educational expertise from across the university to deliver major educational research and scholarly work within the University’s educational priorities;
- make small-scale individual funding available to encourage teaching and learning innovations within units and programmes;
- encourage the formation of sustainable disciplinary communities and networks aimed at educational enhancement;
- make individual Fellowships available for staff who have a well-defined educational research plan.
Funds are awarded via an open application process and the scheme is managed by Bristol Institute for Learning and Teaching. Information about our current grandholders can be found here.
Applications are currently being taken for Teaching Innovation Grants and University Teaching Fellowships.
