Applications invited for ADM-HEA project funding
ADM-HEA is pleased to invite funding proposals for projects of 12 months duration, which will run from March 2010 to March 2011. There are three key themes for applications this year, which align with ADM-HEA’s current strategy:
Education for sustainable development
This strand aims to assist the development of curricula and pedagogy that will provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to live and work sustainably.
Relates to ways in which the sector involves learners in all aspects of their higher education experience at course, department and institutional level. These activities range from student involvement in curriculum design and assessment, through to contributions to departmental and institutional policy through membership of faculty boards, engagement in institutional quality processes and involvement in university and college governing bodies.
Quality enhancement and student assessment
In our disciplinary area, this strand may relate, in particular, to issues emerging from and responses to, the National Student Survey (NSS) data. Equally, it could examine ways that courses, departments and institutions collect information on the student learning experience and use this to effect change and enhance quality. We are also keen to encourage work that explores student assessment in art, design and media and the feedback available to students to enhance their learning experiences.
Applications must be submitted by Monday, 30 November, 2009. More..
