There will be an information session on Monday January 23rd at 12:30 (IT Services, 13 Banbury Road), please feel free to join us. You’ll hear more about how to submit your idea and how to contribute to other students’ ideas.

This call is open to all Oxford University students who have ideas for digital projects. Successful ideas will receive funding of up to £15,000. This year we are looking for ideas matching one of the following themes.

  1. Think of one thing in your learning that could be made better using digital technology.
    We invite ideas for projects focussing on teaching and learning, and are keen to see collaboration between students and departments/colleges. (Key document: Digital Education Strategy).
  2. “We believe that maintaining and promoting positive wellbeing is critical to an individual’s academic and personal success” (OUSU Welfare Vision 2016 [PDF]).
    We’d like to see ideas for projects that consider how student welfare / wellbeing can be supported through digital means.
  3. We also welcome other ideas for projects that bring benefit to the University, its staff and/or students through digital means.
