Call for proposals for small Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) innovation projects

September 11, 2018

The Office of the Provost and Vice-President Academic invites faculty, staff and students to submit proposals for small TLEF innovation projects. The deadline for proposals for both new TLEF applicants and for applicants with existing multi-year TLEF projects is 3:00pm on November 15

Small TLEF innovation projects are grassroots projects that are intended to support experimentation with pedagogical approaches that have strong potential to enhance learning. Small TLEF innovation project teams can request up to $50,000 over the life of the project, and projects can run from one to three years. Funding for the 2nd and/or 3rd years of multi-year projects is contingent upon satisfactory progress in meeting project goals.

The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) will offer a general TLEF information session on September 27 as well as weekly drop-in sessions for applicants who would like to receive support in preparing their TLEF proposals. For more information on these sessions, visit:

In addition to sharing with your team, please also share this information with students in your Faculty (where appropriate). Students may wish to submit projects of special interest to them or their peers, as well as participate in the development of proposals.
