Learning by Questions

We are delighted to announce a new round of IEE innovation evaluation grants. The new funding, provided by Learning by Questions, will support schools with up to £5,000 to test a new innovation in classroom practice.

Innovations can either be based on existing evidence or, where evidence is lacking, test a new approach to address a challenge within school. Potential innovations should meet the following criteria:

  • Be developed and evaluated within a school (so applications from third party organisations will not be considered).
  • Be related to core curriculum subjects (maths, science and English) in Key Stages 1-3 (ages 5-14). Approaches in other areas will be considered, but are less likely to be successful.
  • Capable of using the Learning by Questions system as part of the innovation and/or evaluation (we will check this for you).

If you have an innovation that you would like to be considered, please complete this short expression of interest. Your application will be reviewed by staff at the IEE and Learning by Questions and, if successful, we will help you to develop the project further.

If you have any questions, please contact jonathan.haslam@york.ac.uk or bridget.blanchard@york.ac.uk
