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.
Our Student as Producer grants provide an opportunity for students to lead a performance, research or collaboration project, with up to £2,000 available per project. Our Performance Festival Bursaries, of up to £500 each, support student performance projects taking place outside the University, such as at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
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.
This issue of our newsletter focusses on interdisciplinarity and is now available to view online. It features an item on interdisciplinarity itself, student perspectives on our interdisciplinary modules, an item on wellbeing and study at Warwick, information on our new modules, and the item ‘Students as Leaders: A Campus of Ideas’.
On offer in 2017/18 are: Memory Studies; Experimental Ecologies; Habitability in the Universe; The Medical Mind in Literature and Culture; Thinking Water; and Ways of Knowing: Gender, Bodies, Power. Online registration will open soon.

Creation 2.0 is a play about a laboratory, in which the impossible is made possible, and genetics is pushed further than had been possible. But what does that mean, and who will it jeopardise? This rehearsed reading, funded by IATL as a Student as Producer (Performance) project, is open to all.
