New round of Leading in Learning micro grants

Because of its success in 2011, the ‘Leading in Learning’ programme is offering a new series of micro grants for projects on educational quality improvement and innovation. Anyone involved in the delivery and organization of education who has an original idea about improving the effectiveness of education can apply. The grants are focused on those who otherwise have little time or money to carry their ideas out.

Since 2010, the university-wide programme ‘Leading in Learning‘ has supported projects in the field of educational innovation. The goal is to share knowledge and experience, and to disseminate promising innovations throughout the university.

This year, ten micro grants of € 5.000 each will be available. Instructions on how to apply can be found in the call for proposals. The application deadline is Wednesday 12 September 2012.

Calls for proposals were made in 2010 and 2011, inviting all faculties to develop projects addressing major educational themes within the faculties. Over the last two years, more than 50 projects have been carried out. Progress reports on several of these projects have been published.
