2020 Learning Enhancement & Innovation Grants Announced


The 2020 Learning Enhancement and Innovation Grant scheme recipients have now been announced.

The Learning Enhancement and Innovation Grant scheme is designed to support small-scale pilots and initiatives, fostering investigation and dissemination of best practice approaches in learning and teaching.

In 2020, the LEI grant theme is “Champion diversity in learning”.  Applicants were asked to submit projects that addressed any of the following:

  • Adaptive and/or personalised learning;
  • New approaches to support student group/teamwork;
  • Building student capability to fully engage in learning/assessment methods;
  • Embedding accessibility and inclusivity online and in the classroom;
  • Embedding cultural diversity in learning and teaching.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, grant funding for 2020 projects has been reduced. As a result of this, LEI will only be supporting 4 grant projects this year.

After assessing the highly competitive 2020 LEI Grant submissions, we are pleased to announce the following recipients and their projects:
