Education research relevant for UM

Education EDLAB - Maastricht University Centre for Teaching & Learning invites Maastricht University staff to apply for an EDLAB education research grant à €10.000, -. The aim of this grant is to stimulate both academic and support staff to conduct short-term education research on a topic related to teaching & learning at UM.

At EDLAB, we believe that education research is essential to maintaining Maastricht University’s leadership in research-based education innovation. We therefore want to support theoretically informed and methodologically appropriate investigation of research questions aimed at developing understanding and contributing to the improvement of education. Projects typically focus on topics such as educational design, delivery, assessment, and teaching/learning experience, with implications for UM’s problem-based learning & teaching environment.

This grant is also intended to serve as a stepping stone for researchers interested in applying for larger education grants, such as Comenius, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), and other NRO grants.

Education research professional development events

Conducting education research often requires not only specific contextual and disciplinary knowledge but also theoretical knowledge and methodological approaches that differ from those common to other research disciplines. Therefore, this grant invites interdisciplinary collaboration and encourages the development of mentor-mentee relationships between staff members who are relatively less- and more experienced in conducting education research. Grant proposals can be submitted by teams of a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 members, who represent at least 2 different UM faculties/service centres.

Recognising that this requirement may pose additional challenges, we offer in relation to this grant a series of events and workshops designed to help participants learn and grow through such challenges. Details of upcoming events will be shared soon, so stay tuned!
