Projects which have the potential for cross-disciplinary application are of particular interest. 

Project themes 

Projects have now been selected for 22/23 and align with the one of the following themes informed by the University’s education strategy and BILT’s priorities:   

Students belonging and wellbeing in the curriculum. For example: 

  • How can we design curricula and sessions to build students sense of belonging and promote their wellbeing?  
  • What kind of activities and engagement help include all students, help bring them together and improve their wellbeing?   

Designing active learning sessions – in-person and online. For example: 

  • How can we design in-person session to attract and engage students? 
  • How can we engage students with online material to complement the in-person session?  

Assessment and feedback. For example: 

  • Assessment that promotes student agency across all years of a programme, including projects and research .
  • Authentic assessment and assessment reflecting the Bristol Skills Framework.
  • Group projects and group dissertations.
