Learning Innovation Fund Awards
The DCU Learning Innovation Fund (LIF) is a special fund designated on an annual basis by the DCU Executive Committee to support strategic innovation and enhancement of the University's Teaching and Learning activities. The awards are administered and approved by members of the Learning Innovation Unit and on the advice of the Learning Innovation Advisory Panel
The maximum available award from the LIF was €15,000 per project. Total project costs may, of course, be in excess of this if the additional funding is being provided from other source(s).
Applications were reviewed by the Learning Innovation Evaluation Panel, according to a detailed evaluation process. Applicants were informed of the outcomes at the end of January 2008.
In summary, a total of 35 applications were received, seeking €365,772 in funding; 10 awards were made, amounting to an allocation from the LIF of €91,146.
