Learning and Teaching Project Awards

Each year we invite you, our colleagues, to bid for funding of up to £3,500 to support development and research projects, which are designed to enhance our learning, teaching and assessment practice. 

Our Learning and Teaching Project Scheme allows individuals and teams to apply for financial assistance to support pedagogic development projects.

Following the successful completion of the project and dissemination of the findings, award holders will be eligible to apply to become an Anglia Ruskin University Associate Teaching Fellow.

Eligibility criteria

The Learning and Teaching Project Scheme is open to all individuals and teams involved in teaching and in supporting the student learning experience at our University. Both full-time and part-time staff, including staff from partner institutions and part-time hourly paid, are eligible for support.

Funding will be made subject to acceptance of the award conditions, which includes any necessary ethical approval being granted by the relevant authorities and the signature of the Deputy Dean of Faculty/Director of Service.

Our Learning and Teaching Project Scheme Guidance has detailed information on conditions and eligibility criteria.

Proposal development

Proposals for funding should address learning, teaching and assessment that are of particular value to the achievement of themes in our Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Strategy. The themes are:
