Disciplinary Excellence

As educators we are committed to providing our students with outstanding learning experiences. Our Alliance offers the opportunity to build on existing specialisms, work in communities of practice, and forge strong collaborative relationships at faculty and departmental level. We welcome expressions of interest from academic departments interested in exploring the possibility of collaboration through our Alliance.

The Education Academies

Created as sister organisations, WIHEA and MEA aim to develop and embed outstanding learning and teaching at each University. There are a number of ways in which the Alliance works with the Academies to bring educators together, engage students and challenge educational thinking.

Monash Warwick Alliance Visiting Educators Scheme

The Visiting Educators scheme, managed by the Academies, provides a funding contribution to enable sharing, development and review of innovative pedagogical activity through exchanges of leading educators. Anyone interested in finding out more about the scheme should contact the Academies directly.

Sharing Resources and Expertise

During the first five years of the Alliance we have explored a variety of approaches to collaboration across the globe which has resulted in a number of online resources for staff and students. A selection of Alliance created resources have been collated under the themes of "Global Employability, Research-led Teaching and Global Sustainability". They take the form of a series of masterclasses which open the door to new areas of study, provide opportunities for development and give examples of world class teaching and learning.

Looking to the future there will be new opportunities to work together in the creation and delivery of curricular resources, to explore cutting edge academic technologies and to facilitate globally-focussed learning opportunities for our students.
