Details of our miniproject funding
The Higher Education Psychology Network funded a miniproject scheme designed to promote the use of effective learning and teaching activities in psychology, to encourage the development and sharing of innovative approaches and to raise awareness of the importance of evaluating the effectiveness of educational methods.
Miniprojects typically aimed to develop or bring into wider use exemplary or innovative techniques, methods or materials for use in teachijng specific areas of psychology, or to undertake research intended to improve practice witin the teaching of particular areas. However, some 'pump-priming' funding was available for new projects. The maximum funding for any one project was normally be £6,000.
The Higher Education Academy continues to offer developmental teaching grants.
In 2007 the Psychology Network commissioned The KSA Partnership to undertake an evaluation of our miniproject scheme.
