Digital Arts Lab Blog - FAB Digital Wednesdays

Now that Arts have moved into our FAB new building, we are starting a new tradition for the Faculty: FAB Digital Wednesdays.
Every Wednesday afternoon, usually in the Media Symoposium Space and simulcasted online, we will host events relating to:

  • The Digital Arts Lab - showcasing creative digital practices in the Faculty and beyond, exploring innovations, and dreaming-up innovations;
  • Technology-Enhanced Active Learning - supported tools and techniques for teaching, with an emphasis on making learning active and engaging;
  • Digital Humanities - showcasing and supporting the use of tech in research in the Faculty.

We will be joined by experts from across the University and beyond, including key people from central services (IT, AV, Space Management, Academic Tech, Library). Our next FAB Digital Wednesday will be #UnboxingTheFAB teaching spaces on 12th January. This will include "space walks" to explore the building, and a drop-in support session. Watch this space for more information.

Study buddies is a [currently virtual] programme delivered by the Arts Faculty. The programme provides a space where students can write, read and work on their assessments in a supportive working environment.

Friday 11th December, 9am-5pm (week ten)

Then and Now: Arts at Warwick - Online Exhibition Now Live

The Then & Now project was born in early January 2020. It is a student-led research project that aims to promote a greater sense of learning community amongst the Faculty. As a response to the construction of the new Faculty of Arts building (due in 2021), the project compares what it was like to be an Arts student at Warwick in the past (“then”) and today (“now”), exploring both the history and evolution of the Faculty of Arts and the University of Warwick.

Undergraduate and postgraduate students from across the Arts have worked collaboratively to conduct archival research at the Modern Records Centre and Students’ Union Archive, as well as interviews with current and former staff and students. Originally conceived as a joint physical and digital exhibit, the Covid-19 pandemic pushed us to move all the research to the digital space, which incidentally gave us the opportunity to include far more material than the physical space would have supported
