The Then & Now project was conceived by Dr. Kathryn Woods, formerly Director of Student Experience for the Arts Faculty, to coincide with the faculty’s move into a new building in 2021. The main research aim of this student-led project was to explore the experiences of Arts and Humanities students at Warwick from 1965 to the present. In addition to tapping directly into the experiences of current and former students through oral history interviews, the project examined the art and architectural heritage of the Humanities building, the evolution and expansion of the courses and departments within the faculty, the extra-curricular sides of student life (socialising, sports and societies, student politics) which contribute so much to the vibrancy of Warwick’s campus, and attitudes towards inclusivity and widening participation.
"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.
The purpose of the role is to work with Warwick's Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL) and Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) to develop interdisciplinary pedagogy (examples include, but are not limited to: open-space learning, the digital, medical or environmental humanities, education for sustainability and eco-pedagogy, wellbeing, innovation and entrepreneurship, community engagement, widening participation, humanitarian engineering and undergraduate research). The application deadline is MIDDAY on Monday 14th May 2018. Click here to find out more details.
Elena Riva (IATL) and Louise Gracia (Dean of Students) recently co-developed a successful bid for funding from the ‘HEFCE Catalyst Fund: Supporting mental health and wellbeing for postgraduate research students’.
It will result in a collaborative, cross-institutional project co-led by IATL, the Dean of Students and the Graduate School. This project also involves Mental Health and Wellbeing (MHW), Counselling Services, Warwick Sport, the Library, and Warwick Business School (WBS).'
Apply by midnight tomorrow, Friday 13 October, for IATL funding, available in three streams: Academic Fellowships (for the re/development of modules), Strategic Projects (large-scale projects which support the University's Teaching and Learning Strategy), and Pedagogic Interventions (workshops, lectures, special events involving external guests, etc.).
Our Student as Producer grants provide an opportunity for students to lead a performance, research or collaboration project, with up to £2,000 available per project. Our Performance Festival Bursaries, of up to £500 each, support student performance projects taking place outside the University, such as at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
On 14 December 2016 IATL hosted the showcase event 'Re-shaping the Learning Environment: IATL Funding for Staff', providing a platform for our funding recipients to share ideas and techniques from their exciting work with the wider Warwick community. Our next staff funding application deadline is 5 May 2017 and we encourage you to get in touch about your project idea.
IATL offers a range of funding to support students undertaking independent research, or those working together on collaborative or performative projects. The next deadline for funding is Wednesday 07 December 2016.
Due to the high number of excellent applications we received in May, the available funding for the October round is lower than usual and so we are restricting funding awards to Pedagogic Interventions (up to £1,000 each). We hope to have more funding available for the next round, in May 2017.
For short-term projects which will be completed by the end of July 2016.
