T&L Fellowships 2024-25 and SPARK funding opportunities 

Earlier in March, we announced the call for applications for T&L Fellowships 2024-25 and SPARK 2024-25 funding. Both of these Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) funds support professional learning, in terms of researching and/or developing practice for staff who teach. T&L Fellowships 2024-25 will all be valued at €5,000 while SPARK grants are of €1,000.  
The theme of both calls is ‘Valuing Teaching and Learning: Action, Enquiry, Inspiration’. Under this theme colleagues, either individually or as part of a team, can explore a range of teaching and learning related topics including, for instance, digital learning, inclusive education, Education for Sustainable Development and Social Justice, teaching and learning spaces, the development of teaching and learning communities of practice.  
The information and application forms associated with both calls are available at this link where you will also find a recording of the T&L Fellowship and SPARK information session which was held on 22nd March 2024.  
Closing date for T&L Fellowship 2024-25 applications is Friday 12th April 2024. There is a rolling call for SPARK applications which can be submitted any time before 30th August 2024.  
We strongly encourage all staff who teach to apply for support from one or other of these funds.
