Research funding: the impact of HE reforms on learning and teaching

The HEA invites proposals for innovative new research that provides insights into the impact and implications of the shifting higher education landscape for the status of teaching and learning in higher education. As the national body for learning and teaching, the HEA is committed to establishing a body of evidence that helps to shape and inform policy and supports changes to practice. This is the second year of research activity looking at the effects of policy changes in higher education across the UK. The new research will be centred around several suggested strands of activity, building on findings from the first year of our research investigations in this area. The HEA welcomes bids up to the value of £20,000.

This open call is now closed.
