WIHEA seeks to recognise, develop and embed outstanding academic practices that enhance student opportunities to 'learn beyond boundaries'. Our project funding aims to enable collaborative partnerships between staff and students to directly improve the learning experience. Proposals are invited for development and dissemination projects which result in guidance for departments, programme teams and individuals on six strategic priorities.
Its aim is to develop and embed internationally recognised outstanding practice by encouraging leading practitioners in teaching and pedagogical innovation across the world to share and engage with a wide cross-section of the University, providing staff and students the opportunity to challenge and engage in an international context.
