The University Capacity Development Plan (UCDP) will be funding two more fellowships from January 2022. The fellowships provide excellent teachers and scholars of teaching and learning with the opportunity to spend more consistent periods of time (one to three years), with various forms of support, to focus on aspects of curriculum renewal, the exploration of teaching and learning, and the dissemination of good teaching and learning practice in departments and faculties.
The closing date for applications for the 2022 teaching fellowships is 1 November 2021.
For more information, including the stipulations of the fellowships and the application guidelines, please contact Dr Karin Cattell-Holden, email@example.com.
