The 2022/23 TLEF funding round is complete. The TLEF has awarded $2,149,250 in funding to 10 Large TLEF Transformation Projects and 43 Small TLEF Innovation Projects. A total of 53 new and returning TLEF projects were funded out of a pool of 75 applications submitted for funding from faculty, staff and students at the UBC Vancouver campus.

Approximately $1.18 million on the TLEF-awarded funding this year will employ over 160 UBC graduate and undergraduate students on TLEF project teams. TLEF projects provide an opportunity for students, faculty and staff members to partner together to enhance student learning by working on innovative and effective educational enhancements. Students support the development, implementation and evaluation of the projects as teaching assistants, graduate/undergraduate research or academic assistants, Co-op and Work Learn students. 

To see a complete picture of the 2022/23 TLEF funding round, as well as enrolment numbers from projects funded in 2021/22, please review the 2022/23 TLEF snapshot.  You can also see the full list of 2022/23 Funded Proposals, where you will find project summaries and details about the project teams, as well as find information on projects previously funded by the TLEF (going back to 1999).

The TLEF supports UBC’s strategic plan Shaping UBC’s Next Century, by advancing transformative learning at the university. It is funded entirely through a portion of UBC Vancouver student tuition. Since its inception in 1991, the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) has supported more than 1,200 teaching and learning projects. 

Congratulations to the project teams who received funding for their projects.
