Project Application

This application form is for both students and staff to propose an IATL project.

Please note that you must meet with IATL staff before putting in an application. To schedule a meeting, send us an email at with a brief outline of your project.

Please read this guidance document before you begin this application.

We use the information you submit in this application form to make a decision on whether or not to support your proposed project. Please include as much detail as possible so the panel can understand what you wish to do, how you are going to do it, and why you are interested in doing it. It is also an opportunity for you to flesh out your ideas and create a plan of action.

We encourage co-creation between students and staff, and the development of communities of learning within projects. Your proposed project can apply to draw on IATL's support and expertise to enhance teaching and learning practices at Warwick. You do not need to request funding to apply for IATL project support, and we particularly welcome applications which are below the maximum of £1500.

We aim to notify you of the decision of the approval panel within 20 working days of submission of the application form. It may take longer if you have not provided enough information for the panel to reach an informed decision, so please give as much relevant detail as possible. Please bear in mind that, due to institutional financial processes, it can take a further 14 days for funds to be available to you. This should be reflected in your project start date.

Please note:

All proposed projects must meet the University's guidance on safe conduct in relation to Covid-19: Coronavirus Advice at Warwick

You may wish to look at IATL's strategic focus here: IATL's Strategy and Warwick's education strategy here: Warwick Education Strategy

Staff, please note:

Staff project proposals will be strengthened by the inclusion of co-creation throughout your proposed project. 

Students, please note:

You cannot use work from your IATL project as part of any assessment.


1.7 Is the project related to the development of a new interdisciplinary module? (required)


2.3 I confirm I have consulted with a member of the IATL team about this project application before submission


We invite you to engage with one or both of the following two prompts in your project proposal:

1. Fostering community and learning at Warwick at this time of change.

2. Imagining and creating the future of learning and community at Warwick.

In addition, you may wish to look at IATL's areas of strategic interest. 

3.1 Outline your proposal 

Please share here your vision and plan for your project. What do you intend to do, and why do you want to do it? This information will be crucial when it comes to managing your project and will help the panel judge its feasibility, so please consider the practicality of each stage and how long it will take.

Project Timeline and Milestones

Please include any key actions or activities, including proposed ways of disseminating your learning, and the end of project financial report (if relevant). Please allow at least 20 working days from submission of your application before you plan to start the project to allow the panel to make their decision.

Project Outcomes

We hope that IATL and the wider Warwick community can learn from you and your project. Please include a plan here to share what you have learned from doing the project, and the project outcomes.
3.5 Please select the ways you intend to share the learning from your project. (required)



Please note: IATL will assess whether it is possible for us to offer the support you request. Administrative support from IATL is not available, and if required should be costed separately in the budget. Support might include, for example, making connections with others working in the area of your proposed project, learning from the pedagogic practices developed within IATL, becoming a member of the IATL community of practice. We are currently developing our Sharing Practice pages on the IATL website to share more ideas around the support we can offer and this document will be updated with a link as soon as the pages are available. In the meantime, please explore our website for inspiration and ideas.
