Teaching Development Grants (TDGs) have been a key aspect of the University Grants Committee’s (UGC) policies to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in Hong Kong’s higher education institutions. While there are stringent accountability mechanisms to ensure funds are spent appropriately, there is little evidence to indicate the impact TDGs have had on different aspects of institutional development including student learning, staff knowledge and skills or changes in institutional culture supportive of high quality teaching. It is for this reason that the Institute indicated in its report on TDGs for the last triennium that it would undertake a retrospective evaluation of its TDG projects. The purpose of this proposal, therefore, is to meet this commitment to UGC and by doing so to conduct an evaluation that will assess the impact of TDGs that have been awarded at HKIEd over the past decade. This retrospective evaluation will rely on the identification and analysis of relevant documents, participant surveys and interviews with key informants. The expected deliverables are a record of TDG outcomes, an assessment of their impact and the development of an impact methodology to be used for future TDGs.
