International Fellowships 2012


The application process for our International Fellowships scheme is now closed.  We will announce the successful bids in the coming weeks.  A new round of funding will be made available in 2012-13 academic year.



The Centre for Distance Education is opening up its Fellowship scheme for individuals from international teaching institutions with expertise in open and distance education, technology enhanced learning (TEL), and related areas.

The Centre provides a focus for professional development and scholarly activity in flexible and distributed learning across the University of London. It works through a dynamic community of practice which supports intercollegiate collaboration and knowledge-sharing to influence policy and practice in the field of open and distance learning and develop good practices across the UoL International Programmes and beyond.

The Centre for Distance Education Fellowship Scheme is central to this community. Working individually, together and with others in the Centre’s wider network, the Fellows provide core expertise and specialist support that underpins the work of the CDE, making strategy and policy proposals and developing the Centre’s services and expanding knowledge-base.
