Welcome! 33 New WIHEA Fellows join the Academy

A WIHEA Fellowship recognises and rewards outstanding achievements in learning and teaching and is an exceptional opportunity to engage with colleagues across the university, improve the student experience and make a genuine difference to Warwick through research, debate and policy formation.

Selected by the WIHEA Advisory Group during a competitive annual selection process, consisting of application and nomination in July 2018, the 33 new staff and student Fellows joined WIHEA’s collaborative community at the start of September 2018 and most were able to attend a welcome lunch on 18 September 2018.

Following an introduction to WIHEA’s current activities, the new Fellows discussed what being a WIHEA Fellow meant to them and how they hope to benefit and contribute, please see some of what was shared below.
