Meet outstanding members of Warwick's teaching community

The Warwick Awards for Teaching Excellence recognise innovative teaching practice and outstanding learning support across the University of Warwick. Since 2003, over one hundred fifty colleagues and postgraduate tutors across campus have been celebrated.

Together, they have created supportive, transformational environments that have had a positive impact on learning and teaching for Warwick students and staff alike.

See what colleagues recognised through the Awards are doing.

Dr Michael Scott"It was an enormous honour winning the WATE award, and it's been incredibly helpful for us and for our undergraduates. It's helped us create a new module and new digital exercises in existing modules, and it's given us the potential to vastly expand our outreach work, inspiring future scholars to enjoy the wonders of ancient history too."

- Professor Michael Scott
