Are you interested in funding to support new teaching and learning ideas?
Staff can apply for up to £10,000 through the University Education Development Fund to support collaborative projects which deliver a real benefit to students’ education at Newcastle University.
We got in touch with colleagues who have successfully applied to the fund to find out about their projects and experiences.
Dr Lana Liu, Newcastle University Business School worked with Dr. Mei Lin from the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences in a collaborative project: Enhancing critical moments in postgraduate taught programmes in Accounting and Finance and in Applied Linguistics and TESOL.
“[There was an] easy application process with workshops, which were worth attending, as they were very informative. These workshops also helped to reduce the mist about the funding process.
The feedback from the Panel was really useful and thought-provoking too.
We now believe that we are in a much better position for our research investigation in this project.”

Karolien Jordens, Institute of Cellular Medicine worked with colleagues across HaSS, SAgE and FMS to explore: Postgraduate Study in Newcastle: the inter-cultural experience (PG-Nice)
“The application process was quite straightforward. The funding helped us to get started with the practical side of our Student Experience research project. It gave us the opportunity to work with people from across the University and offer students the opportunity to get job experience while at the same time they’re part of a research project.”

There have been a wide variety of strategic projects funded from across both academic units and central services in the university.
Staff from branch campuses are also encouraged to apply.
You can read more about the full range of projects on the LTDS website.
