TED Projects & Funds
Experimentation & evaluation are a key part of our work. Emerging (& existing) technologies and their related pedagogies offer great potential but with so many possibilities it is important that we spend time assessing them.
TED Funds is a small pot of money available to SEMS & SoI staff to support these projects. The funding can be used in a number of ways, for example to purchase equipment or to employ a student to assist with the project.
Application Process & Your Commitment
To apply to become a TED Project & benefit from TED Funds you must:
- Complete a simple application form (Deadline: Tuesday 12th June, 2012)
- Commit to some dissemination of the project outcomes
TED staff will assist with this process and it could be quite informal e.g. a blog post for dissemination. The exact format will be agreed on a project-by-project basis.
The applications will be judged by the TED team. We will be looking to support projects that aim to use technologies to introduce new or refine existing teaching practices. Projects that show potential for future departmental or programme level implementation are particularly welcomed. We have finite funds but are hopeful that we will be able to provide some level of support to all suitable proposals.
All applicants will be contacted by TED in mid-June.
TED Funds 2012
There is no strict limit on the level of funding for a single project but it is expected that most projects will be awarded sums that can be measured in £10s or £100s. We envisage that funding will be capped at around £1000 per project.
Some of the 2012 funds have already been ear-marked for video projects. We are purchasing some equipment which can be loaned by staff and plan to employ a City student as a temporary assistant to help with recording & editing. They will work closely with our colleagues in the MILL. Staff with video projects that will require support from our student assistant must complete the above form.
If you have any questions about TED Projects, Funds or the application process don’t hesitate to contact one of us.
