On the 15th of April 2021, Dr Elena Riva and IATL have hosted the 5th Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching Conference that explored a variety of issues in the theme of 'Interdisciplinarity: Learning from Each Other', reflecting on the learning elements of collaboration, co-construction of knowledge and practice that underpin the interdisciplinary teaching and learning experiences of students and teachers.
Join us to celebrate incredible stories from change-makers and trailblazers who are creating a better future for us and generations to come. Students from IATL’s modules, particularly Change: critical understandings, practices and action, will be attending as ‘ambassadors for the future’.
"IATL’s funding was integral in my show’s success. My show ‘an evening with verse writer’ is a poetry play fused with music and art.
The funding allowed me to support student artists within university and beyond. Shown in the Coventry Shop Front Theatre, ‘ an evening with verse writer ‘ successfully opened a space for honest conversations.
It also won an Artistic Development Award and has now been commissioned for 2 nights - October 2 and October 3 in the Warwick Arts Centre.
Members of the teaching team of IATL’s Science of Music module, including Dr Oksana Trushkevych, Dr Gavin Bell, Dr Sue Burrows, Tim Cunningham and the Coull Quartet, gave a talk and musical performance at the Guildhall in Coventry on the opening day of the British Science Festival. IATL’s tutors explained in their talk how sound waves are made, how they travel through the air and how they’re perceived, referencing their teaching on the Science of Music module and research in Ultrasound.

As a partner institution of BCUR we were delighted that 27 undergraduates from Warwick were accepted and presented their research work at BCUR earlier this month. This year BCUR was held at the University of Sheffield and hosted students from 69 institutions, from a variety of disciplines. At the two day conference students had a fantastic opportunity to present their research work by speaking, poster, installation or performance, with Warwick students participating in each element. The conference was busy, packed full of interesting topics and debates, it also offered the chance to network and socialise with fellow students and academics.
BCUR19 has already been announced, it will be held over two days, 15th – 16th April 2019, at the University of South Wales in Cardiff. Look out for a Call for Abstracts in the autumn term with a submission deadline during December 2018.
