Impact in learning and teaching grants

A workshop will be held on 20 April exploring how to plan a project that will make a national impact in the higher education sector.

This workshop with Tilly Hinton, who created the Impact Management Planning and Evaluation Ladder model for the Office for Learning and Teaching, will help grant applicants to visualise how their project will make an impact.

Impact refers to the difference that a project makes in its sphere of influence – both during and after the funding period. Maximising impact requires forecasting and planning, and projects need to focus on influencing people at all levels, and creating a ripple effect of change.

Completing the project impact plan is now an important component of grant applications.
