Learning Enhancement Projects 2020 07.11.19

As part of the National Forum’s Strategic Alignment of Teaching and Learning Enhancement Funding in Higher Education 2019, UCD have received funding of €170,000 to support small-scale Learning Enhancement Projects (LEPs). The aim of these LEPs is to support engagement with teaching and learning enhancement by individuals or small teams within UCD. The initiative is aimed at all UCD faculty, staff and students.

A call for applications for funding will be issued soon, prior to that, a consultation event will take place on Thursday, 14th November. This event aims to bring together a broad cross-section of the UCD community including students, faculty and staff to help identify areas within and across schools and units that could benefit from small-scale enhancement funding.

The specific objectives of the event are to:

  • Identify a list of key themes or issues (specific teaching and learning challenges currently being faced) that could be a focus of a learning enhancement project
  • Develop concrete ideas for achievable, small-scale, time-bound enhancement projects
  • Obtain suggestions on meaningful ways to spend small-scale funding for learning enhancement
  • Gather input into how to engage individuals who may not have been previously involved in teaching and learning funded projects

The event will take place in the O’Brien Centre for Science on Thursday, 14th November. Tea, coffee and pastries will be available at 10:45 on the first floor atrium in O’Brien Science Centre – East and the consultation will start at 11:15 in B154A Science West.
