Call for applications: support for correcting teaching materials in English, 2016
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
UAB Plan for Languages (2016-2020)
To assist in the correction of English-language materials used by lecturers who teach in English on undergraduate or official master’s degree courses.
Type of aid
The maximum allocation per person and subject is €600.
The total amount to be allocated under this programme is €6,000. In the event of additional funding being obtained throughout 2016, it is possible that the current financial allocation may then be increased.
The total amount available may be divided between the two periods for receiving applications, in order to guarantee sufficient funding for the second period.
After each of the periods, any funds allocated that have not been used up entirely for the purpose of correcting teaching materials will be made available in the next call.
Teaching & research staff
This support may be provided to academic staff of the UAB engaged in teaching through the medium of English on UAB undergraduate or official master’s degree courses, with the endorsement of the dean, the director of the centre or the director of the department where the teaching takes place.
The teaching materials to be corrected must be of a minimum linguistic standard, as determined by the Language Service. If not, the support may be withdrawn.
If available funds are insufficient to satisfy all the demand, priority will be given to those applications that would benefit the largest number of students.
The support takes the form of a subsidy towards the cost of correcting the materials. The correction process (fees, correctors, etc.) is managed by the Language Service (Servei de Llengües). The Language Service establishes minimum conditions for correcting the materials.
If a lecturer has not been assigned to a a subject during the application period for this support, the person responsible for the subject may submit the application. Afterwards, if the support is provided, the Language Service should be informed of the name of the lecturer for the subject.
This support is incompatible with any other support or grant provided for the same purpose.
