EDLAB Education Innovation Grants

EDLAB awards annual grants for small-scale education innovation projects. We hope to support UM teaching staff to realise their educational visions and innovation ideas within the university’s PBL environment. All topics are intrinsically linked to UM’s educational philosophy and learning environment, such as instructional design, teaching delivery, assessment, PBL formats, international classroom, blended learning and PBL competencies.

EDLAB grants for education innovation

Have you ever wanted to try something new within your educational practice? Then this is your chance to do so! EDLAB offers grants of €5.000 to realise innovations within UM’s problem-based learning environment. Within this broad theme, one could think of a range of sub-themes that are intrinsically linked to UM’s educational philosophy and learning environment, such as PBL & CCCS, assessment, teaching delivery, blended PBL and international classroom.

We hope to particularly engage early-career teachers to submit a proposal. Seasoned teaching staff is encouraged to apply as well.
