Embedding wellbeing in the Curriculum

WIHEA Masterclass: Embedding Wellbeing in the Curriculum: The Warwick Wellbeing Pedagogies Library

Tuesday, 27 October (2-3pm) Embedding wellbeing in the curriculum is one of the pillars of the 2020-2024 Warwick Wellbeing Strategy as student wellbeing is inextricably linked to the learning experience. For supporting such crucial action, as a group of students and teachers, we have co-created a Warwick Wellbeing Pedagogies Library, collecting and collating over 80 wellbeing-positive pedagogic strategies, developed by Warwick students and staff. In this Masterclass, we will share with you our project, its co-creation process and everything we have learned about wellbeing-positive pedagogies and how you can embed them in your Department. We will also celebrate the launch of the Library so...come with your party hat on! View further information and book your place.

RAS: Keeping your Data Safe

New for 2020, the Department will be publicising devleopment opportunities for research active staff under the RAS banner.

Research Data Management - Keeping your Data Safe

This workshop is currently being planned and further details will follow shortly.

Overview:

Research data management (RDM) refers to the handling, storage, curation, preservation and provision of continuing access to analogue and digital research data. While the nature of the data that might be collected for a research project might be varied - even within a project - good data management skills are essential in all cases.

To promote good practice at every stage of the research lifecycle, the Library has created a collection of online resources and webinars to provide practical advice and guidance with collecting, storing, retrieving and preserving your data.

This short webinar session will focus on the importance of keeping your data safe.

Improve your R skills- new RLadies chapter - first online meeting

We are starting an RLadies Coventry chapter based at Warwick University but open to all.

RLadies is a worldwide organisation promoting diversity in the R and coding community (more information on https://rladies.org). Women and other minority groups are underrepresented in all areas of programming and RLadies’ main goal is to enable people of all genders to achieve their full programming potential by building a collaborative network of R leaders, mentors and learners. One focus of RLadies is promoting women as leaders of the chapters, but everyone is welcome to attend RLadies meet-ups.

The first online meet-up will take place on Thursday, October 29th at 4:30pm (UK time) on Zoom. This session will be led by Ella Kaye who will talk us through different ways to get help when you get stuck on a problem in R.

Equality and Diversity: Healthcare: The challenges and experiences of inspirational professionals
TEAMS - please follow links to register

Professor Olanrewaju Sorinola and Dr Nariell Morrison

 

This is the second in our new seminar series where we hear from staff, students and members of the wider healthcare community about the experiences and challenges they have faced within their careers and how they have overcome them. This is an inspiring series of virtual seminars where we hope the audience will also be able to share their thoughts and questions as part of the approach.

 

Our next seminar features Professor Olanrewaju Sorinola and recent graduate of the MB ChB and honorary research fellow Dr Nariell Morrison who will share their perspectives from different points in their medical careers. Professor Sorinola will discuss his experiences as a black academic and an NHS consultant. He will talk about his time at WMS and some of the challenges in being the first black professor at Warwick Medical School (WMS). Dr Morrison will talk about her career to date and what it means to be a black medical professional within the NHS.

Institute of Engagement launch event

We passionately want the Institute to be a hub for sharing and discussing inter-disciplinary approaches to Engagement; a place that provides thought-leadership on the kinds of support (and recognition) Engagers need; a facilitator of the development of engagement as an important part of the Warwick Student experience; as well as contributing to the organisation of great local, regional and national Engagement events, like City of Culture 2021.

 

This is a call to join us for our launch webinar on Monday 9th November 11am-12.30pm(sign up via www.warwick.ac.uk/wiewebinar) and to apply to be a Foundation Fellow of the Institute (more on these roles in the PDF attached and on the website) so that staff and students can play a role in helping direct the work of the Institute over the next years? We are keen for contributions from academic and professional services as well as from students so this really is a call out to the whole community at Warwick!
