The Office of Education Research (OER) is pleased to announce the MOE Academies Fund (MAF) Request for Proposals (RFP). For more information about the RFP, click here.
About MAF Projects
Projects funded by the MAF must generate findings that can enhance teacher expertise and professionalism in key subject domains and they can be either development- or research-type projects.
In contrast to research-type projects that focus on the creation of new knowledge or building of new theories, development-type projects aim to implement tested ideas or create implementable products, processes or frameworks to improve teaching and learning. Development-type projects are therefore more likely to be directly beneficial to MOE Academies/Language Centres, given their practice orientation.
