UCT Teaching Innovation Grant

24 July 2018

Dear colleagues

We invite individual academics, teams or departments to apply for the University of Cape Town (UCT) Teaching Innovation Grant to fund initiatives aimed at making teaching at UCT more effective.

This grant is available to support individuals or teams who are engaged in developing departmental-, programme- or faculty-level innovations to curricula, or courses aimed at improving student learning, including through the design of digital materials for blended or online learning as well as open educational resources. Grants of up to R20 000 are available to support such projects.

The UCT Teaching Innovation Grant replaces the previous teaching grants offered by the university, including the Teaching with Technology Grant and the Open Education Resources Grant.

Please email Cindy Gilbert by 6 August 2018 with your intention to submit. You will then be invited to attend a briefing session on 13 August 2018. The closing date for all applications is 31 August 2018.

Submit your application for a Teaching Innovation Grant.

The Teaching Awards and Grants Sub-committee, which reports to the Senate Teaching and Learning Committee, oversees this process.


Associate Professor Lis Lange
Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Teaching and Learning
