A series of small projects have been commissioned in support of the project. King’s invited members of the College to apply for small grants related to the curriculum characteristics and a number of these were awarded. Warwick commissioned one project for each curriculum characteristic. Documents relating to the projects are available here in a restricted access area. The projects are:
Engaging students via the research nature of undergraduate practicals
Project Lead: Dr Stuart Knight, Department of Biochemistry, King’s College London
