|I’m Cherisse, a final year PhD student in the Law School. My research examines the framing of trafficking in persons in the Anglophone Caribbean and the Global North impacts on that. My teaching portfolio includes criminal law seminars in the law school for first year undergraduate students and Active Bystander Intervention Courses as a part of the Community Values Education Program (CVEP) team. I have also assisted with facilitating some seminars for Master of Laws (LLM) students on their dissertation writing module. I've been invovled with WPTC since last academic yeat and I am keen to build on that experience; providing more and better resources for GTAs.
|I’m Imogen, a second year PhD researcher in the History department. My work centres on early modern suicidality, and I have broader research interests in mental health, wellbeing, and the supernatural. During my second year I taught a 30 CATS module on medieval history to second year students, and also a compulsory skills course for first years to help with their transition to university. I look forward to teaching early modern history during my third year. In the past year I participated in the APP PGR programme, and achieved Associate Fellow status with HEA. I intend to complete the Postgraduate Award in Teaching and Learning in HE during my third year. My teaching is primarily informed by enthusiasm for the subject matter, something which I am keen to share with my students. I am also very interested in the experience and treatment of GTAs within the HE institution, something which I will be exploring further in this role.
I'm Anton a final year PhD student funded through chemistry to work on Electron Diffraction working on applications in Physics and Life Sciences. I have been demonstrating the the Chemistry undergraduate labs for the past two years and last year started my APP:PGR journey.
Warwick Manufacturing Group
Warwick Manufacturing Group
|I’m Pierre and I’m a final year PhD candidate in History. I’ve been a seminar tutor for 3 years: I previously taught the first year core module ‘Making of the Modern World’ and this year I’m teaching ‘Britain in the 20th Century’. I have been responsible for first year study skills sessions and led/co-led various student-led research projects (‘Memories of Binley Colliery’, ‘Then & Now: Arts at Warwick’, and ‘Student Research Portfolio’). I’m currently the Arts Faculty Student Experience Intern. I completed APP PGR and am working towards the PGA TLHE follow-up. I got involved with the PGR teachers project because, having found teaching so rewarding, I’m passionate about ensuring future tutors have similarly positive experiences. I really enjoyed courses such as APP PGR (in terms of learning and the people I met) and want to increase awareness of these opportunities. I hope the project lays the foundations for a greater sense of community amongst PGR teachers across the whole university, whatever their department or role, in terms of sharing practice, offering guidance and support, informal socialising, and more. My role focuses on pulling the project’s different strands together on our various platforms such as Sitebuilder and Moodle.
Academic Development Centre
|I’m Sara, a Senior Teaching Fellow in the Academic Development Centre. As a department, we are responsible for supporting and developing teachers at Warwick and offer a range of professional learning opportunities for colleagues with varying levels of experience. I have particular responsibility for the development of postgraduates who teach and manage several programmes which offer both development in pedagogy and practice, and lead to recognised qualifications and teaching statuses. I am passionate about the PGR teacher community, and advocate for them within the wider University, across departments, within the committee structure and with HR. I know that PGR teachers offer a unique perspective and pedagogy which makes a huge difference to Warwick students which is why I applied for WIHEA funding to give a space and a voice to this community. Alongside my work with PGRs, I am involved in several pedagogic research projects, external examining and provide consultancy and support through the LDCU. As a WIHEA Foundation Fellow, I aim to support the parity of esteem for teachers at Warwick and enable a dialogue between peers to improve and develop practice. Fundamentally, I think teaching is great!
