Colleagues from IATL, Student Careers and Skills and the Law School recently received WIHEA funding to bring together information about student research opportunities around the University. An institutional review was conducted and a student research hub on MyWarwick was created. The hub covers what research is, the benefits of getting involved, the opportunities available, and will soon be linked to opportunities within departments.
IATL Academic Managers Jo Wale and Caroline Gibson are delighted to have been made WIHEA Fellows for 2017-2020. The role involves working with colleagues university-wide, helping embed good practice in learning and teaching and feeding into strategic projects. Caroline will be leading the WIHEA Internationalisation Learning Circle and would like to hear from other WIHEA Fellows interested in joining the group.
