Our work and who we are




Although we are a relatively small team, BILT’s remit is wide-ranging. We launched in 2017 with the aim to inspire education innovation across the University through providing grants and funding, hosting events and building an online repository of education development resources.  

Since then, we have grown to include many more activities. As well as our original work, we are now responsible for: 

  • Academic and Professional development, including the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice, the CREATE HEA Fellowship scheme, digital and blended learning courses 

  • Celebrating staff through the Bristol Teaching Awards, the Best of Bristol lecture series and supporting National Teaching Fellowship and Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence nominations 

  • Funding for teaching innovation and staff/student projects in our theme areas 

  • Sharing practice through our popular BILT blog, podcast and video channels, and well as developing a huge repository of case studies 

  • Partnering with students, including employing BILT Student Fellows and running regular Student Hackathons, as well as supporting the University’s Student Research Journal 

Our work is centred around four key themes – you can read more about our work in each of these areas on the theme page.  

We have four high-level priorities to steer our work, which are:  

  • Developing teaching recognition and celebrating success
