NEWS: Lincoln Higher Education Research Award Winners revealed

The Lincoln Higher Education Research Institute’s annual Research Awards are designed to support colleagues at the University of Lincoln working on pedagogical research that will advance understanding of higher education. This is an important part of LHERI’s aim to develop expertise and impact through support and guidance to colleagues, and by facilitating effective internal and external partnerships.

The applications were peer reviewed by colleagues from across the University, before a judging panel in which 10 successful projects were awarded funding. For more information on a particular project, please contact the Project Lead. For more information on the LHERI Research Awards, please visit:
