Circular 4/08: Learning and Teaching Innovation Grants
JISC invites institutions to submit funding proposals for projects to undertake work under the third round of its Learning and Teaching Innovation Grants Programme.
JISC wishes to fund one year projects and activities that fit with the vision, outcomes and principles of the JISC e-Learning programme and support innovative approaches to learning and teaching. This is an open call, and projects dealing with any aspect of e-learning are welcomed. To reduce the initial investment in time and resource needed to develop a traditional JISC proposal and to encourage speculative and innovative ideas from the community bidders are invited to submit outline proposals
Over the last two rounds of LTIG we have been trailing the use of an online submission system (Bristol Online Surveys) for the submission of initial bids to LTIG. This trial has now ended and the next round will invite the submission of bids via email. However the short form of these initial bids has been retained and we will be strictly enforcing word limits and content restrictions. Please read the guidance and template in full - bids outside of the required parameters will NOT be assessed.
Bids should be submitted by ELEARNING-BIDS@JISC.AC.UK, using the template provided. Letters of support will not be required at this stage.
Funds of up to £75,000 for projects of one year duration are available. JISC has committed at least £500,000 for this activity during the three planned years of this programme.
Please note: The lead institution may only submit one proposal per assessment point.
The next deadline for submissions is January 12th 2009. Further information will be available as soon as possible.
