Education Conference 2018

Tuesday, 15th May 2018

Ramphal Building, University of Warwick

Warwick is signalling its strong commitment to renowned and distinctive education. Change is afoot and this year our story is one of beginnings. Over the last 12 months a new Education Directorate has been appointed, a new Education Strategy drafted, a major institutional review of assessment initiated, promotion criteria instituting parity of opportunity and esteem for research and teaching designed, and campus development continues. Preparations for TEF Year 3 are underway (with 50 providers are piloting subject level TEF) and departmental action plans are being implemented in response to the Institutional Teaching and Learning Review. The NSS (as always) brings new enhancement goals. This conference will explore how we can work together to build upon and improve existing practices in order to realise our individual and institutional goals, as we secure Warwick’s reputation for high quality research-led education, strong disciplinary and interdisciplinary identities and pedagogies, inclusive and internationalised curricula.

This event has been generously sponsored by the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Social Science,Warwick Medical School, Warwick International Higher Education Academy, the Institute of Advanced Teaching and Learning, and The Library.
