CDE Teaching and Research Awards

The Centre for Distance Education provides funding, through an annual funding round to support research activities in the University of London and member Iinstitutions.

Our Teaching and Research Awards (TRAs) are aimed at supporting original pedagogic research studies that can provide evidence for innovative and effective practice in distance, on-line and technology-enhanced learning, teaching and assessment.

TRAs provide support for research activities that enhance knowledge about, and methods of implementing, distance learning and teaching. They are open to staff throughout the University of London Federation and to CDE Fellows. TRAs have a value of up to £5000.

The outcome of our next funding round will be announced in later in 2019.

Successful Teaching and Research Award studies comprise original enquiries that will advance knowledge and improve the student experience in the field of distance and flexible learning and are normally followed by publication.
