SALT Small Project Grants programme.

A big project

This programme is aimed at supporting academics wanting to explore new approaches to their teaching practices, possibly in response to perceived needs / issues, with the ultimate aim of improving the student learning experience.

Individual projects should address the development, implementation and evaluation of innovative approaches to teaching, learning and assessment, possibly related to this year’s themes:

  • Designing in Participation
  • Teaching and Assessing
  • Taking technology into the classroom

Funding is available up to a maximum of £1500 for each project and was awarded on the basis of clarity of proposal, relevance, enhancement of the learning experience, potential transferability and value for money.
