The scheme, Researching New Directions in Learning and Teaching, arising out of the HERDSA OLT Advancing Teaching and Learning Project will provide one-off seed funding to enable groups to meet, bring in expertise (such as educational researchers, OLT grant holders or fellows), draw on mentors and /or obtain assistance to undertake their project’s development.
The goals in funding these projects are to:
- Stimulate further exploration of under-researched areas
- Encourage collaboration between experienced and early career learning and teaching scholars and, if applicable,
- Provide opportunities for mentorship and support from experienced scholars, OLT Fellows or OLT grant recipients.
Successful recipients will receive a grant of up to $2500 to support their collaboration. They will also be required to provide a feature article for the April 2014 issue of HERDSA News, and it is hoped that the funding might also stimulate future presentations or papers on the areas under investigation.
