After WATE

Writing about web page

Warwick Award for Teaching Excellence winners and commendees continue to support innovative and inspirational teaching practice across the university after they have won their awards. Kate Astbury from the Department of French Studies, a WATE winner in 2007, has just published her profile on the Teaching Excellence website. This provides a shining example of her ongoing commitment to teaching innovation and proves that exemplary practice does not stop once an award has been achieved.

Nominations for next year's Warwick Awards for Teaching Excellence now open

Writing about web page

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!
