Teaching Awards for Department of Engineering Science Staff

At a recent ceremony at Rhodes House 66 Oxford University staff received awards in recognition of their excellent teaching. Congratulations to Professor Alison Noble and Dr Jane Frew from the Department of Engineering Science on winning their Awards.

The Oxford University Teaching Awards recognise all kinds of work to engage students and help them learn, from creating new courses to innovative use of audio and video podcasts and the delivery of exceptional lectures and demonstrations.

Professor Alison Noble received her Award for her hard work and imagination in helping to establish the MSc in Biomedical Engineering, and creating the RCUK (Research Councils UK) Centre for Doctoral Training in Healthcare Innovation.

Dr Jane Frew, the Department’s Deputy Administrator (Academic), was recognised for her support of teaching. For many years Dr Frew has played the lead role in the administration and smooth running of the Department’s courses, and has established an excellent relationship with staff and students alike.

The Oxford University Teaching Award scheme, which is co-ordinated by the Oxford Learning Institute, recognises excellence in college and University teaching, the winners being selected by their divisions or faculties. In addition to academic staff, the Award winners include a number of administrative and support staff who are recognised for their contributions to the success of University courses.

Many of the Awards were made following feedback from undergraduates, graduates and members of staff who singled out the special contribution of those involved in promoting the highest standards of teaching and learning.
