Opportunities and Celebration

One of BILT's high level, long term priorities is to develop teaching recognition and celebrate success. We love to share best practice and innovative ideas, and give praise and recognition to those who are making a difference.

Funding, support and community

BILT provides both academic and professional services staff with a range of opportunities to engage in activities related to the University’s education strategy and the Institute’s priority teaching and learning themes. 

Applications for these funding opportunities are now closed for 22/23. Applications for 23/24 will open in TB2 2022.   

Events & workshops

BILT runs events throughout the year that especially mark out those who are excelling in their teaching, we advertise events widely as well as promoting them in the fortnightly BILT briefing, sign up if you would like to join the BILT mailing list .
