'Restorative Justice at Warwick: Could it Work?'
Thursday, 13 May (1:30-3pm) (via Microsoft Teams)
Following on from the WIHEA Symposium 'Restorative Justice in Higher Education' on 22 April 2021 which looks at the higher education context generally, this webinar is an opportunity for staff and students at Warwick to explore how restorative justice (RJ) practices may fit within our practices, for example, in teaching or dealing with disagreement or discipline (such as plagiarism).
Dr Amanda Wilson (Warwick Law School), one of the speakers at the Symposium will be co-leading the session together with Dr Imogen Davies (Warwick Medical School) and Dr Jane Bryan (Warwick Law School). They will speak in more detail about some of the advantages Warwick may enjoy if RJ were to be integrated within its practices and some things that would need to be considered.
This is a supportive space where innovative ideas can be discussed and considered amongst peers. There is no need for prior knowledge of RJ nor attendance at the Symposium.
Who is this event aimed at?
All Warwick staff and students but particularly those with an interest in conflict management, such as students and staff involved in managing teams (including leading seminars), discipline, academic integrity, and residential life.
