Ensuring exploration of the Warwick community values is now a part of our Academic Induction Framework. An important facet of our work in the CVEP team is to engage with those staff responsible for academic inductions to embed Warwick's values into students' academic learning experience, in a safe and supported way.
The Welcome team (based in Student Opportunities) hosted a mini-conference in March aimed at colleagues responsible for planning Welcome Week activities in their respective departments. Presentations ranged from the practical (e.g. how to schedule events into the system) to the creative (e.g. running an online escape room).
We presented a snapshot of five potential activities developed in collaboration with staff and students to explore values. View our presentation here.
We are currently updating our 'Values education in academic induction toolkit' to include example activities, top tips for new facilitators, and advice around promoting sessions to students. The updated toolkit will launch shortly.
