HEFCE funding success: Student engagement and interdisciplinary learning

Dr Georgia Kremmyda and Dr Volkan Degirmenci have won funding from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) Catalyst Fund for their project Developing a student-driven educational model between, beyond and across disciplines.

The project will develop a conceptual model for exploring the ways in which students act as co-producers of learning, and how they might work beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries. Project partners are Professor Gwen Van der Velden (Warwick International Higher Education Academy), Dr Nicholas Monk (Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning) and Professor Colin Eddie (UnPS Ltd). With a total value of £99,490 the project will take 18 months to complete.

Chris Hughes, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education) commented:

Considering the competitive nature of Catalyst Funding, I really want to congratulate the team on this achievement. It's an imaginative bid on both student engagement and interdisciplinarity and therefore fits in very well with the key characteristics of a Warwick education. Humanitarian Engineering itself is already a highly innovative field, but this bid adds a whole new dimension to interdisciplinary curriculum development."
