Digital Learning Bids

The Centre for Learning and Teaching is pleased to offer awards of up to £500 to encourage innovation and play in the curriculum with a specific focus on digital tools and technologies.

Staff will be offered the opportunity to bid for these funds by proposing a project which focuses on:

  • a personal area of interest;
  • your subject area and how you and your course team will be developing and embedding digital literacy;
  • ideas for technology use in the classroom or online;
  • examples of digital tools which you have seen in the sector or
  • an idea resulting from a discussion with your students.

The proposals will be required to demonstrate how students will potentially benefit from your project and, where possible, how they will be involved in the activities.

A named member of staff will lead the bid and the project team. The bid may be linked to a Curriculum Innovation Project but both the Digital Learning and the Curriculum Innovation Project bids must stand on their own merit during the selection process.

Staff are encouraged to collaborate both within and across Schools/course teams and with partner colleges. Partnerships involving Student Digital Champions within the School are particularly encouraged.

We are keen to support projects which encourage individual staff to explore and embed their areas of interest in relation to the curriculum.
