JISC invites institutions to submit initial proposals for innovative projects in the e-learning domain, as part of its e-learning programme for 2010/11.
Projects and activities must fit with the vision, outcomes and principles of the JISC e-Learning programme and support innovative approaches to learning and teaching, identify areas of activity suitable for further investment and enhance the overall educational experience of students throughout the sector by identifying and solving common problems that are not covered by existing or planned JISC programmes. Projects can run for up to 12 months, and work in any aspect of the e-learning domain. Maximum funding for any one project is £50,000.
The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is 12:00 noon UK time on Monday 21 March 2011. Projects should start by June 2011 and may run for up to 12 months. All projects must be complete by May 2012.
Proposals may be submitted by HE institutions funded via HEFCE, SFC, HEFCW and DEL Northern Ireland, and by FE institutions funded via SFC, DCELLS Wales and DEL Northern Ireland. FE institutions in England that teach HE to more than 400 FTEs are also eligible to bid provided proposals demonstrate how the work supports the HE in FE agenda.
Proposals may be from single institutions or consortia. Partnership arrangements may be developed outside the sector (for example with research council sites, publishers, commercial suppliers), but the lead partner must meet the criteria outlined above. Funds can only be allocated through the lead partner.
Please note: The lead institution may only submit one proposal per assessment point.
