ADM-HEA Projects 2011-12 – reminder

ADM-HEA is pleased to invite proposals for projects of 12 months duration, which will run until March 2012.

Deadline for submissions: Monday, 6 December, 2010

Applicants will need to demonstrate that their project aims broadly align with the primary purpose of ADM-HEA: to enhance the student learning experience across the HE art, design and media sector with the objectives of developing and supporting learning and teaching. ADM-HEA also encourages and supports the development of new networks and partnerships.

There are three broad themes for applications this year, which have been set down in the Higher Education Academy’s list of priorities for the work of Subject Centres during 2011/12:

  • Better teaching

  • Flexibility of learning

  • Graduates with impact

Project applicants are asked to consider ways in which the art, design and media disciplines might respond to these priorities at a disciplinary, departmental, institutional and regional level to implement positive change based on principles that are applicable across the art, design and media HE sector.
