Applications submitted for this process will be delegated to a colleague experienced with Teaching and Learning Grant applications and adjudications to provide suggestions for revisions before the final submission deadline.
Please note that making revisions as suggested does not guarantee success of the application in the adjudication process; rather the IPR process is offered as an opportunity for semi-formal feedback only.

Receiving a grant is an important opportunity to think in-depth about a common element of our teaching practice. It’s something we teach regularly but often we don’t talk about how and why we teach it.
