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.
What does IATL mean? What does IATL do? Is it true that students have freedom over their assessments at IATL? Can students & staff receive funding for an idea?
Want to hear more about IATL? Join the 2 IATL Co-Creation Officers Lanaire and Pula on our instagram @iatlwarwick at 1pm on the 28th of October.
The online module fair took place on the 29th of April, allowing students to listen to presentations and ask questions about the different modules. You can read more about the event and view the presentations online here.
The uses and expectations of technology in education have perhaps changed as much in the last ten weeks as they have in the last ten years, and we are in the midst of a period of rapid learning and adjustment. Therefore, now more than ever it is valuable for us to consider the relationship between teaching, learning and technology.
Join us for this interactive online conversation as we discuss our learning and practices during this sudden move to online life, how we might take that learning into future learning environments and classrooms, and how we can support each other and share practice in this period of rapid change. We will critically explore the role of technology in our teaching and learning in this new landscape and consider how, as educators and learners, we can engage with technology so that it better supports (rather than governs) our pedagogic intentions and practices. This will be a supportive and exploratory event in which we can discuss what we have learned from both our successes and failures, as well as how we can incorporate that learning into the future of higher education.
The seventh annual International Conference of Undergraduate Research took place at Warwick on 24th and 25th September in the Oculus building, linked to simultaneous events at nine institutions across five continents.
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.
