                                              Priorities
TRNs are short, practical guies to teaching approaches in law, bringing together essential topics,
practical tips, sources, assessment modules and e-learning considerations relating to a particular
approach.
To enable outstanding researchers to develop their careers by taking their research in a new direction
or to a new level.

Developing or strengthening good practice
Studies of teaching and teacher development. Studies that lead to beter undertanding &
improvements in the intellecutal, material and organizational resources that contribute to successful
learning and teaching- See web link for full detals
Better teaching - developing excellent teaching for all students
Flexibility of learning; enhancing the learning experience;
Graduates' impact and contribution to society and the economy
Sharing developed resources, approaches, strategies and materials which effectively promote student
learning in physical sciences and professional skills development.
Up to £50 forUK based participants at our workshops. In return for the bursary, we request a report
on the workshop attended. Travel brsaries will be paid on receipt of a satisfactory report within two
week sof the event.
Application are encouraged from Economics, Education, Management and Business Studies, Advanced
Quantitative Methods, Social Work, and Socio-Legal Studies
Resource reviews: The Subject Centre's collection of Resource Reviews has been written by colleagues
who share experiences & recommendations, & describe their use of various learning resources in the
context of art, design & media education.
Funding decisions are based on four key criteria: Scientific quality; Timeliness; Track record of
applicants; Value for money

Work that: addresses a significant gap in provision; develops or strengthens good practice;
challenges convention; tests new ideas/practices; takes an enterprising approach to achieving its
aims; sets out to influence policy or change behaviour more wide




The Education Division has instigated a scheme to assist members of the Royal Society of Chemistry
to activate and energise their research in the field of chemical education. Bursaries are available for
attendance at conferences and arranging collaboratio

Funding for one year projects and activities that fit with the vision, outcomes and principles of the
JISC e-Learning programme and support innovative approaches to learning and teaching
HE Innovation projects including employer engagement - projects which enable staff to develop
innovative approaches to teaching, learning and assessment. Education research - projects that will
inform innovation in the curriculum
To promote the use of effective learning and teaching activities in Psychology, to encourage the
development and sharing of innovative approaches and to raise awareness of the importance of
evaluating the effectiveness of educational methods.

Are you interested in setting up a Special Interest Group? Funding opportunities for co-ordinating
Special Interest Groups within the engineering community are currently available.
Possible areas: Innovations in teaching practice & curriculum design; the solution of a specific
problem in L&T; the experience of working with students with particular requirements; technology in
teaching; collaboration with organisations.
CEBE Working Papers provide a means of rapidly disseminating substantial contributions to
knowledge about learning and teaching in Built Environment fields.They lie somewhere between
ephemeral reports and refereed journal articles..
Capture of learning and teaching practices in social policy and social work in the form of short case
studies
In the UK the Trustees wish to support innovative projects, which attempt to :-accept responsibility
for disseminating results to practitioners in a form which is likely to result in changes in their way of
working

To provide financial support for innovative and original research projects of high quality and potential.
Funding to support colleagues in UK HE institutions who wish to invite Guest Speakers to contribute to
staff development in the learning and teaching of Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies within their
institution.
The Subject Centre can pay the expenses of up to two speakers at teaching-related sessions within
Research conferences (up to a maximum of £200 per person). Claims must be supported by
appropriate documentation.
The aim of the Student-Led Initiative route is to support the establishment of innovative collaborative
research training programmes, originated by and run for postgraduate doctoral students that have a
subject – or discipline – specific focus.


Good learning, teaching and assessment practices in Built Environment
Open call for case studies, priorities: Employer Engagement; Plagiarism; Final year project work/
student research; E-learning - Mobile assessment, JORUM and Web 2.0, digitisation; Linking teaching
& research; Transition; Widening participation

Travel grants to fund attendance at conferences and events which are primarily concerned with the
dissemination of good practice in learning and teaching in the chemical sciences i.e. pedagogy

For further information visit http://elesig.ning.com/page/small-grants-call-autumn-
2010?xg_source=msg_mes_network
Enhancing teaching and learning by encouraging staff in Education departments to take existing ideas
that are working well within a module, a programme or with a cohort of students, and to develop a
dissemination strategy to encourage the ideas' adoption
Small Grants provide support for individual projects, which may take the form of, eg, development of
innovative teaching programmes, surveys of practice and issues, or the creation of resources for
teaching (including electronic resources).

Case studies: ADM Subject Centre invites you to submit a case study describing, reflecting upon and
evaluating an initiative that you have introduced in your own teaching practice.

A Hot Topic discussion enhances teaching or learning in some simple, imaginative and creative way:
something that is essentially 'of the moment'.
Projects that promote change and enhancement in learning and teaching across an academic
department, addressing one of the following Academy themes better teaching; flexibility of delivery
graduates with impact


Examples of good learning, teaching and assessment practices in built environment education

Provision of concise and essential information on good and innovative practice for teaching staff in the
Built Environmnet subjects.
A hot topic enhnaces teaching or learning in a simple, imaginative, creative way. Suggested topics
might be; new technology, sustainable development, accreditation, new ways of looking at
assessment and feedback, student engagement
