The Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) projects for 2017-2018 have been announced. Fifteen large projects (above $50,000) have been funded, and 49 small projects (less than $50,000) received funding.
The TLEF is funded through a portion of student tuition and aims to enrich student learning by supporting innovative educational enhancements. Since its inception in 1991, it has funded more than 1,000 teaching and learning projects.
This year, projects from 10 faculties, as well as the Office of the Vice-President, Students, Graduate Studies, and the Library, received funding. The projects touch on a variety of themes, including more effective ways to use videos in courses, experiential learning, student-generated content, and open access resources. A number of projects involve interdisciplinary collaborations across UBC.
