Pro-Director Education Vision Fund

Pro-Director Education Vision Fund

LSE’s new Pro-Director Education Vision Fund has been established to support the delivery of the School’s Education Strategy 2015-2020, and is designed to contribute to the enhancement of the educational experiences of LSE’s undergraduate and taught master’s students. Funds of £100,000 are available annually, from October 2016, for three academic years.

Last year the ‘Developing and sustaining inclusivity in the curriculum at LSE’ project was awarded seed funding for the development of this important initiative. This year the Pro Director Education has awarded continuation funding to Dr Suki Ali to support the further development and extension of this important piece of work.

As a result, the Vision Fund will make £50,000 available for this year (2017/18) and we are seeking applications within or across the following strategic priority areas:

1.       Programme renewal, design and development

This might include, for example, projects that seek to integrate equity, diversity and inclusivity initiatives, or innovative teaching approaches, into the design and delivery of LSE taught provision.

2.       Proposals that initiate or develop applied research opportunities for students

This could include, for example, the integration of research methods training and/or applied research projects within programmes, or projects that interact with central provision for the development of research and related skills in students.

3.       Learning community development within departments and across the School

This might include, for example, projects involving alumni, industry partners, policy-makers and/or other HE institutions, or community-building activities within and across academic departments.

 4.       Institutional and educational research

This might include, for example, projects that advance institutional knowledge of educational enhancements or those that investigate disciplinary or interdisciplinary teaching and learning practices.
