Funding for course development?
You can apply for funding to enhance pedagogical innovation and develop documentation within active learning, digital learning methods or digital assessment for 2018-2019 from the Norwegian Agency for Digital Learning in Higher Education.
The Norwegian Agency for Digital Learning in Higher Education (Norgesuniversitetet) supports projects that explore and develop pedagogical practice. The projects have to document experiences and best practice. These should be shared with fellow teachers, the government and the society.
The Norwegian Agency for Digital Learning in Higher Education is established and supported by the Norwegian government. One of the agency’s main tasks is to supply funding for pedagogical development projects.
This year, the agency will prioritise projects within these three fields:
- Active learning (e.g. flipped classroom, problem based learning, students as researchers)
- Digital learning methods and structures for the working life, industry and commerce
- Digital assessment (e.g. ways of measuring the students' learning outcome)
The Norwegian Agency for Digital Learning in Higher Education has a total of 12.5 mill NOK for various projects in 2018 - 2019. Examples of projects that previously have been granted support are academic writing for bachelor students (UoB), classroom quiz in mathematics (NTNU), students as research teams (Nord University), “Firenight” – three courses for the working life in a new pedagogical model, (UoB) and Implementing formative assessment through digital portfolios (HVL). More examples of funded projects are available in Norwegian: Prosjektarkivet (Norgesuniversitetet).
Technically, NHH will send the application. We would like those who are interested to contact Frank Mortensen for additional information and discussion on how to proceed with the application.
The Agency's application deadline is 20 September 2017.
