The University Grants Committee (UGC) supports the development of learning and teaching initiatives through the allocation of the Teaching Development Grants (TDGs) amongst tertiary institutions. The UGC emphasizes that the Grant should integrate and support institution-level initiatives and promote innovations to enhance the quality of teaching for the better provision of quality education to students.
Projects should produce demonstrable and direct teaching and learning benefits which support the implementation of the Discovery-Enriched Curriculum (DEC), as well as advanced good teaching methods in specific disciplines. For details of DEC initiatives at CityU, please visit http://www.cityu.edu.hk/provost/BDEC/
The funding ceiling is HK$240,000 per project.
Projects involving overseas collaboration may request up to HK$270,000 per project.
Projects which help to promote interdisciplinary collaboration, the use of technology in creative teaching & learning, the development of Gateway Education, or social responsibility and ethics will be given priority.
Maximum project duration: 18 months
