How to submit an application for funding to go towards learning and teaching initiatives.

The Shape Teaching Development Fund (TDF) proposals will open for 2022/2023 in January 2023.

To submit a written application, please complete the following stages:

  1. Submit Expression of Interest by 24th February 2023.
  2. Submit Full Project Bid by 28th April 2023.

Funding Criteria

The TDF (Teaching Development Fund) has a Shape Fund to enable members of staff and students (in collaboration with at least one academic member of staff) to support larger-scale teaching innovation projects.

This academic year (2022/23) preference will be given to applications that address assessment and feedback and/or degree outcome gaps. However other excellent and innovative learning and teaching proposals can also be considered.

Maximum of £3,000 funding per application.

Applications will require an initial EOI, followed by an invitation to submit a full application form if the project is deemed to be eligible for TDF funding.

How to apply for funding

Applications will require an initial verbal discussion with the TDF Panel, to do so please initially contact CLT followed by an invitation to submit a full application form if the project is deemed to be eligible for TDF funding.

After an initial discussion with the TDF panel, you may apply for funding, submit an EOI application form

Receiving payment

If your application is successful, the agreed amount will be made as a lump sum into a project K account.

Reporting back about your funding

Following the funding being given, outcomes will need to be made available to share more widely with University colleagues. This could be in the form of a blog post or a short talk at a forthcoming CLT Lunchtime Hub and/or EduFest, the University's annual learning and teaching conference. We would also expect a evaluation report, the Autumn of 2024. In the first instance, please email a brief synopsis to clt@bath.ac.uk.
