HEA Senior Fellowships for IATL Deputy Director and IATL Teaching Fellow
IATL away day
The IATL team held a productive and enjoyable day at the Cryfield Sports Pavilion in July. Taking the opportunity of time away from the office, the team met to discuss what they enjoy about IATL's work and the challenges of working as a busy team, before focusing on the ways in which IATL can help to drive forward the University’s education strategy now and in the future.
Congratulations to Phil Gaydon, who has won an unprecedented second Warwick Award for Teaching Excellence (WATE) PGR. This represents a fitting end to his time with IATL, where he has been a great asset to the team; as announced in May, he is to be Teacher of Philosophy at St Paul’s School in London and we wish him every success in this new role.
Did you miss the exhibition in June? Head to the dedicated webpage now to explore the paintings, artworks, posters, stories, videos, websites and podcasts produced by this year's cohort of cross-faculty students for their self-devised assessment (SDA) and learn more about genetics.

The new MSc in Humanitarian Engineering is an interdisciplinary programme which offers students the opportunity to invent, create, design, develop or improve technologies which promote the well-being of poor, marginalised, and/or under-served communities. The programme will open for applications in the autumn, for a 2018/19 start. See also: Symposium on Humanitarian Engineering, 3-4 July 2017.
'Sport, Philosophy and Practice' is a project which has explored the gaps and overlaps between philosophy and sport, asked how and where the curricular and extra-curricular intertwine, striven to adapt academic assessment to take into account embodied learning and expression, and reflected on best practice in the creation and development of interdisciplinary and physically active modules.
