We support the development and enhancement of learning and teaching through an internal fund called the Teaching Development Fund (TDF).
You may also be interested in our Research Led Innovation Fund available for specific projects, activities and events initiated by research staff and students for the benefit of groups of researchers within the University. This fund enables researchers themselves to have a greater input into the ways they are supported and developed to complement the training and development opportunities provided centrally by the Researcher Development Unit (RDU).
External funding opportunities
There are many sources of external funding for short and longer term projects. You might access these via a number of national organisations and also professional and subject bodies/associations.
We are able to offer support and input to the production of bids for external funding, however, we are unable to provide a full bid-writing service.
The following national organisations make funding available for learning and teaching related projects on a regular basis:
- Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA)
- Higher Education Academy (HEA)
- Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC)
