As the project unfolds we will provide regular updates and information about particular aspects of the project. We will also have updated information on the component parts of the 'scholarship framework’ as it develops, including information on reconnaissance research work and the testing of aspects of the framework. From time to time this will include requests to take part in the testing and evaluation of parts of the framework.
We will also be posting information and feedback from workshops, seminars and conferences which relate to the project, which will include 'calls for papers’ and case studies, as well as invitations to attend events. Please contact the project team or email John Lea at any time if you have ideas for a relevant activity or workshop/presentation which relates to the project.
Guidelines for case study submission
We invite everyone involved in college higher education to submit a case study.
- The case study should have a broad theme, e.g. 'peer review’; 'research-based learning’; 'employer engagement' etc. and a title, e.g. 'An experiment in flipping the classroom with first year foundation degree engineering students’; 'A CPD scheme to encourage staff engagement with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF)’; 'Students co-design a Sports degree programme’ etc.
- The case study should be about 750 words and describe the broad nature of the practice/policy, rather than provide detailed information. Please provide an email address or URL to other sources where further information could be accessed.
- For video case studies, please try to limit the length of videos to between 5-10 minutes.
- Please let us know the names of the key people involved in the development of the practice/policy in the case study and the names of any colleges involved. This is important for claiming ownership of the work, and to enable others to acknowledge and reference your work accordingly.
- The Scholarship Project website will remain live throughout the lifetime of the project so you will be able to amend or update your case study at any point. We also welcome multiple case studies under different themes.
- To discuss your ideas or to submit your case study, please email the project team or John Lea.
