Call for Letters of Intent for Large Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund projects

Call for letters of intent for Large TLEF Transformation projects

Faculty and staff are invited to submit letters of intent for Large Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) Transformation projects. The deadline is 3pm on Thursday, July 15, 2021.

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. Projects are eligible to receive up to $250,000 in funding and can span up to three years. 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.

In 2020, TLEF funding was deployed as block funding to help Faculties in Vancouver transition to online learning due to COVID-19. UBC Vancouver is now returning to the regular TLEF funding cycle.

Application Process

Applications for Large TLEF Transformation projects go through a two-stage approval process. Successful applicants in the LOI stage will be invited to submit a full proposal, due by October 14, 2021.
