Becomming a WIHEA Fellow

A WIHEA Fellowship is an outstanding opportunity to engage with colleagues across the university, improve the student experience, make a genuine difference to Warwick and strengthen your own career development.

There are currently 87 selected Fellows and an annual selection process takes place during June/July. Nominations are invited and individuals may also nominate themselves. As part of the appointment process, the Academy requires confirmation from the relevant Head of Department or Professional Service whether they support a Fellowship appointment, this should be included in the nomination statement.

WIHEA works to give a collective voice to learning and teaching at Warwick through projects, policy influence, governance and exchange of good practice. The Academy is nationally and internationally connected to education networks, research, collaborations and exchanges.   student_engagement_1.jpg

What is the role of a Fellow?

Fellows take on institutional or Faculty roles that help embed good practice in learning and teaching across the University. This can take many forms:
  • Fellows can bid for project funding to embed agreed practice, or review and redesign existing practices.
  • Fellows may represent the teaching 'voice' by taking part in the formal governance of the University through committees, sub-committees and working groups.
  • Fellows have the opportunity to inform Warwick's strategic and practical thinking on learning and teaching, as and when new challenges or ambitions arise.
  • Fellows are able to develop expertise in areas of interest and seek to develop influence within the institution to enhance practice and policy.

What is expected of me as a Fellow?

In addition to either being a member of a Warwick committee, subcommittee and/or working group, we would expect you to have either a leading role in a learning & teaching funded project or assist in a consultancy capacity to support the strategic direction of learning and teaching at Warwick. We would also expect you to attend our regular (approximately every 6 weeks) Fellow lunches and support a range of Academy events/activities.
