We are very pleased to announce the shortlist for the 2017 Warwick Awards for Teaching Excellence (WATE) and Warwick Awards for Teaching Excellence for Postgraduates who Teach (WATE PGR).
This year saw the highest ever response by members of the Warwick community, with over 80 staff colleagues and 40 postgraduate tutors nominated by nearly 400 students and staff. Nominees came from 27 departments and centres across the University and nearly three out of four nominations came directly from or were co-supported by students.
Professor Christopher Hughes, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education) and Chair of the WATE and WATE PGR judging process, commented
This year's nominees show that continued commitment to excellence in learning and teaching throughout Warwick is making a wide-ranging and noticeable positive difference to our students. We are justifiably proud of the achievements of everyone nominated and know they will take great satisfaction in the knowledge their colleagues and students have taken time to make sure their efforts are recognised.
