Teaching and Learning Innovation Fund

The Digital Teaching and Learning Sub-committee is pleased to announce that the Teaching and Learning Innovation Fund is now accepting bids for projects taking place across the 2019–20 academic year. The Fund is co-ordinated in conjunction with the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning, and awards grants of up to £20,000 per year to projects focusing on innovative approaches to enhancing education in Cambridge.

Projects that engage with digital education are encouraged, as are projects responding to issues with relevance beyond a single subject or discipline. However, proposals are not required to foreground educational technology or online learning. Collaborative or interdisciplinary applications will be particularly welcomed. Proposals must demonstrate robust methods for data collection and evaluation, with clear alignment to relevant University strategic objectives. The Fund is open to all academic and professional staff across the collegiate University; students and staff on short-term contracts are also encouraged to apply as part of a team application. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Monday, 25 March 2019. An informal Q&A session for potential applicants will be held on Thursday, 14 February 2019; see the website below for further details.

Further information about the Fund, eligibility, evaluation criteria and how to apply are available on the CCTL website at:, or contact the team at
