Future priorities

The Education Incubator is committed to supporting the best ideas for enhancing learning from across the University. We work with students, academics, and other members of the University to identify innovative practice and Institutional priorities. 

Applying for a 2019/20 Incubator Project

The application process for undertaking an Education Incubator project during 2019/20 will be opened in December. The Education Incubator provides time and collaborative opportunities for academic colleagues (E&R and E&S) to focus on pedagogic innovation in research-inspired education, including those made possible through the digital revolution. Support can include:

  • One year of resource to backfill teaching or administrative duties (at 0.20 – 0.5 fte) for the Incubator Fellows;
  • Funding to pay for student engagement in Incubator projects;
  • Travel, conference attendance, and other incidental costs.

Incubator projects contribute to excellent education at the University of Exeter. Incubator fellows will be expected to work collaboratively to develop responses to the themes that are portable across disciplines and colleges. Outputs from projects could include innovative modules ready to run in the following academic year, MOOCs, resources to support other colleagues to adopt and adapt innovative practice, or systematic evaluation of innovations.
