Please note that due to the tight timeframe for the proposals to be reviewed by the WIHEA Advisory Group, there will be no extension given to the above closing deadline and there will only be one main call this academic and financial year. However, if funding is still available after this call, further proposals submitted during the year will be considered. Once all funding for the schemes is allocated no further proposals will be considered. Updates on available funding will be posted on this web page.
Alongside WIHEA's overarching commitment to Internationalisation, Interdisciplinarity and Student Research, WIHEA's internal funding enables collaborative partnerships between staff and students and invites project proposals that support the development and dissemination of good practice in the following strategic areas: Student Engagement and Inclusion, Digital Education, Innovative Assessment, Teaching Leadership, and Curriculum Design & Development. Successful proposals are likely to offer an online resource, case studies of successful embedded practices, comparison and reference to resources at peer institutions and/or pedagogical literature.
Aimed at enabling the development of collaborations between two or more Higher Education Institutions to develop and share knowledge, experience and capabilities to address current challenges within the HE Sector, proposals for the external collaboration fund are invited to address, Inclusive Education, Blended Learning and Innovative Assessment, Sustainability in Education, and Student and Staff Wellbeing.
