The Excellence Fund for Learning and Teaching Innovation
Rewarding excellence and promoting courageous and innovative ideas in research and teaching
The College’s Strategy 2015-20 encourages Imperial to act courageously and innovatively when pursuing new opportunities.
The President, Professor Alice Gast, has dedicated one million pounds per year to reward excellence, while promoting courageous and innovative ideas in research and teaching.
Half of this has established the new Excellence Fund for Learning and Teaching Innovation which will be used to support educational initiatives that will challenge our students to fulfil their potential. Those receiving funds will help to form a community of excellent and innovative teachers who will play a key role in promoting good practice and helping the College to deliver a world-class educational experience for all of our students. This funding is designed to give our staff the time and space to be bold, to take risks, to investigate and to learn.
In the third annual call, funding was made available to support innovative projects which support inclusion for Home students from under-represented groups at the College, focussing on supporting student success.
The deadline for submissions was Friday 6 September and the successful projects will be announced shortly.
