Academic Innovation Project Fund

Project Focus 2018-19

The Academic Innovation Project (AIP) fund (formerly known as the Teaching Innovation Project [TIP]) supports projects that develop innovative pedagogy and/or relate to research into teaching and learning practice. Priority is given to projects that can have an impact at institutional level or higher. This could be achieved by, for instance, leading a project that could serve as best practice to enhance DMU academic practices more widely; lead to publication in a peer-reviewed journal; or support a funding application for further pedagogic research. Funds will be available for the 2018-2019 academic year (subject to budgetary approval).

Applications are invited that address the aims of the ongoing curriculum review with specific reference to the ULTAS:

  • Embedding good practice in Personal Tutoring
  • Creative approaches to assessment and feedback
  • Embedding initiatives like #DMU Global, #DMU Works into the curriculum
  • New approaches to programme design

Bids that include student input are especially invited.

Successful applicants will be required to produce interim reports, a final report for ULTC and a poster for the annual Learning and Teaching conference.

The Academic Innovation Project Board, chaired by the PVC (Academic), will manage the bid process. The Learning & Development team in Organisational Development will manage allocation of project funds once awarded.
