Looking for a small grant to help fund research into learners’ experiences and uses of technology? The ELESIG Small Grants scheme closes on 1 December 2009.
ELESIG is the Evaluation of Learners’ Experiences of e-learning Special Interest Group. It consists of an international community of researchers and practitioners from higher and further education who are involved in investigations of learners’ experiences and uses of technology in learning. The small grants scheme has been supported by the UK Higher Education Academy.
ELESIG is offering small grants to community members to engage in activities in line with its aim to:
- develop a shared repertoire of resources which will be of benefit to the community and the sector and which build on shared knowledge and practice about learner experience research.
Proposals are invited from individuals or groups, which lead to the production of outputs which will help ELESIG meet its aims.
