As a five-time Paralympic medallist, Kare Adenegan’s (BA History, 2022) sporting endeavours have played a big part in her university experience. No stranger to making history, Kare graduated with a first-class honours degree a week after claiming silver in the T33/34 100m at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Here Kare reflects on her studies and how we can all learn a lot from history.

Calling all students! The Digital Arts Lab (DAL) Student Showcase competition has just been launched for 2022. This is the third year of the DAL student competition, which enables our students to submit their best academic work or personal artefacts created through or about digital tools. This may be an academic assessment which utlises a digital tool (for example a video, podcast or website), a personal endeavour that uses or showcases a digital tool, or a short piece of writing that comments on the digital world (fiction and non-fiction are both welcome). Further guidelines here.
The winning submissions from last year can be found here. The judges were amazed at the winning entrants' creative use of technology and are looking forward to seeing this year's submissions. Winners from last year were part of a session at the University of Warwick TEAL (Teaching Enhanced Learning) Fest, where they explained how they had gone about creating their digital entry at a session which included educators from across the UK and further afield.
