EdeX Teaching and Learning Grant

The EdeX Teaching and Learning (T&L) Grant was introduced in 2012 to provide faculty with the opportunity to research and develop new strategies to improve student learning. They are intended to foster a broader culture in the 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 Educational goals.
