On 27 April 2022, the University of Warwick hosted a joint event between the Widening Participation staff and Student Networks around the theme of 'Sense of Belonging'. The event was open to all staff and students at the university. There was a chance to highlight the support, opportunities and challenges faced by staff and students who study and work at the university. The event included interactive workshops, insight presentations and discussion forums.
Staff and students from across the Faculty of Arts were involved in presenting, and attending the event. Sessions included 'Young Carers’, 'Commuter Student', and also the 'Mature Student Experience'.

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.
