We work with a network of departmental contacts to embed community values activities and resources within their departments. These staff members usually have a responsibility for student experience and departmental culture. Activities include the 'Introduction to Active Bystander' workshops delivered in Term 1, as well as those in the values-based teaching activities toolkit.
We collaborate with staff to co-create activities and resources for students. For example, we created the the values-based teaching activities toolkit to support staff with the introduction of Warwick Values to incoming students, in a way that is relevant to their everyday experiences.
Another goal of the programme is to showcase and host relevant work from staff and departments to ensure that any work around values education can be accessed and adopted by others. As one such example, explore resources to think about and challenge social expectations prepared by Dr Cath Lambert (Associate Professor of Sociology, Warwick).
Partnership with the SU
In addition to working with University departments, we also work closely with the Students' Union to deliver activities and resources relevant to SU sports clubs and societies.
