WIHEA Funding


WIHEA Project Funding

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.

 WIHEA Strategic Priorities

A: Student Research
B: Internationalisation
C: Interdisciplinarity
D: Student Engagement
E: Assessment & Feedback
F: Group Work
Successful projects are likely to offer an online resource which includes a conceptual introduction to the selected priority, case studies of successful embedded practices, comparison and reference to resources at peer institutions and/or pedagogical literature.
