The Bill Tagg Bursary

Bill Tagg

This Naace bursary was set up in memory of the first Professional Officer of Naace, Bill Tagg. Bill had an abiding passion for the use of ICT and its impact on teaching and learning. It supports Naace members or their nominees allowing them to engage in short periods of clearly focussed research activity. The results of this research, reports and/or materials are disseminated to the membership and to the wider community where appropriate.
Anyone in Naace membership is entitled to apply for the Bursary. Members are also encouraged to support applications from colleagues in schools or other institutions. We particularly seek to encourage the collection of evidence that shows how the use of a variety of ICT solutions impacts upon teaching and learning in its broadest sense, and how this in turn contributes to raising standards.


Have you an area of interest you would like to engage in more fully? Would you like to prove that ICT has an impact on teaching and learning? This bursary could provide the time and the resources to enable your research to take place.
 
A maximum sum of 3250 will be made available to cover:
 travel costs, for meetings with supervisors at Nottingham Trent University, or elsewhere as required (you should allow for at least 4 meetings)
 a stipend to cover release time at a daily rate, and
 materials and consumables.
The Bursary is awarded to three candidates per year. Applications for the Bursary should be submitted to the Naace office by the end of March 2007 to luke.lowis-dennis@naace.org or by post.
 
A short-list is selected early in April, and selected candidates are invited to make a presentation of their plans to a panel comprising representatives of the Naace Executive, the family of Bill Tagg, Becta and the Nottingham Trent University. The successful applicants are announced by mid-May.
The recipient is then registered as a student at Nottingham Trent University and is supported by a supervisor appointed by the University. As a student they are able to attend the Research Methods module at the university if they wish.
