6 June, 2022

Faculty members at UBC Vancouver are invited to submit letters of intent (LOI) for Large Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) Transformation projects.

The 2023/24 Large TLEF funding round is a special call to academic units interested in hybrid and multi-access course redesign projects. The LOI submission deadline is 3pm on July 14, 2022.

Approximately $1 million in funding is available to support teams looking to redesign multiple courses within a program to maximize flexibility and accessibility for students by combining both in-person and online approaches within and/or across course activities.

About Large TLEF Transformation projects 

Large TLEF Transformation projects are multi-year projects that are intended to advance UBC’s strategic goals relating to transformative learning. Typically, these projects impact multiple courses or programs, have the potential to involve collaboration across departments or Faculties, and align with one or more strategies or priorities in UBC’s strategic plan: Shaping UBC's Next Century.

Application process 

Project submissions will go through a two-stage approval process. Successful applicants in the LOI stage will be invited to submit a full proposal, due by October 13, 2022.
