The nine inter-university teams to win Pounds 7.5 million for research projects in the second phase of a Pounds 12.5 million programme to improve teaching and learning were announced today.
They include three related to post-compulsory education, focusing on undergraduates, further education students and newly graduated professionals. The aim is to disseminate any practical results from the research networks through the Institute for Learning and Teaching and the subject teaching centres.
Some 95 applications were submitted in the second round of the Economic and Social Research Council Teaching and Learning Research Programme. The teams had to focus on student motivation, engagement and application of research.
