EdeX Teaching and Learning Grant

The EdeX Teaching and Learning (T&L) Grant was introduced in 2012 to provide monetary support for disciplinary experts to conduct Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) studies at NTU via systematic inquiry or research into student learning. They are intended to foster a broader culture in NTU that nurtures and supports the strategic teaching and learning aims of the university. Each year, the projects focus on various themes related to NTU's Educational goals.
