The Warwick Awards for Teaching Excellence (WATE) are an important way to highlight the great teaching practice that takes place at Warwick. They are also an opportunity for students to identify and celebrate their inspiring and innovative teachers. Yet there are Departments whose staff rarely feature in the lists of WATE award winners or commendees. Does that mean that no excellent teaching takes place in these disciplines? I suspect not. More likely is that teaching staff are not being put forward for awards. This is perhaps indicative of the status of good teaching in the senior management of these Departments.
It would be fantastic, if this year, there were WATE nominations from all areas of the university. So please encourage your colleagues and students to get nominating!
