Education Development Projects

Every year the Bristol Institute of Learning and Teaching (BILT) provides staff with the opportunity to access funding and expert support to deliver an innovative teaching and learning project.  

The projects are aligned with our annual themes and at the end of the year the outcomes are disseminated across the University and beyond.

Projects should aim to support evidence-informed innovation at Bristol, developing excellence in learning, teaching and assessment, and improving the student experience.  We particularly encourage the use of funds to engage students as paid partners in research.

Applications should illustrate the potential to embed and sustain projects, activities and initiatives should the outcomes prove to be of significant Programme, School, Departmental, Faculty or University benefit. Projects which have the potential for cross-disciplinary application are of particular interest.
