Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning Event

Writing about web page

May 20th 2014, 10am-1pm

This event will celebrate the power of the interdisciplinary through the work of four National Teaching Fellows who will contribute, between them, three discrete 40-minute sessions.

  • Dr Laura Ritchie, Teaching Fellow in music at The University of Chichester will invite colleague to learn the cello.
  • Professors Carol Rutter and Paul Raffield will demonstrate their teaching methods in their shared Warwick module 'Shakespeare and the Law'.
  • Dr Nicholas Monk, Deputy Director of IATL, will offer a series of 'take-away' exercises designed to appear to students across faculties and disciplines.

No preparation is required, other than a willingness to participate and collaborate.

The event is designed to demonstrate some of the ways in which teaching and learning styles and activities can function across disciplines and faculties. It is also intended to provoke questions, and will require that participants imagine their disciplines in slightly different ways from those to which they may have been accustomed. Perhaps your discipline and the way you teach is more 'interdisciplinary' than you think.

The three hours will conclude with a plenary and some definitions of what we might mean in our teaching and learning experiences when we talk of 'interdisciplinary', 'multidisciplinary' and 'transdisciplinary'.

Feedback practices climb up the strategic agenda at Warwick

Writing about web page

The University of Warwick is mounting a concerted effort to understand what students think about the feedback they receive on their formative and summative assessments and to think strategically about how best practice may be embedded to improve the student experience.

Recent initiatives include:

  • A joint IATL/Student Union campaign to survey student opinion on the feedback they receive and how their experience may be improved. The survey is here:
  • The recent Institutional Teaching and Learning Review which produced a report on feedback practices across the university highlighting the need to improve communication channels between students and departments and for guidance to be issued
  • The Teaching and Learning Showcase on 19th June will look at strategic approaches and practical implementation of feedback practices.

Those interested in research on feedback practices may find the project pages of It's Good to Talk: Feedback, Dialogue and Learning helpful. This is an NTFS funded project between Warwick, De Montfort and London Metropolitan universities.

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!
