HEFCE’s Catalyst Fund supported universities and colleges to develop and evaluate experimental innovations in learning and teaching for either undergraduate or postgraduate taught provision.
67 small-scale projects ran for a period of 18 months and developed innovations around six key themes:
- Learner analytics
- Inter- and multi-disciplinary practice
- Blended and immersive learning
- Transition and retention
- Collaborative learning
Student engagement was central to each project.
