Illuminations is a WIHEA funded project, building on the work of the Wellbeing Pedagogies Learning Circle and engagement with the Warwick Wellbeing Strategy. Our primary interest at this stage is to explore different ways of talking and thinking about workplace wellbeing with different stakeholder groups across the university. The aim is to help locating and illuminating ways in which institutional work practices, processes, and procedures, in a post Covid-19 landscape, enhance and/or inhibit the wellbeing of student-facing staff at Warwick. Have you got something to say about workplace wellbeing? Got 10mins to spare? Help us find the words to tell your story using our anonymous submission form.
