Msc awards

Teaching Awards

Our MSc course staff have won a series of awards in recognition of their teaching.

2019 Congratulations to Celine Jones, laboratory manager for our MSc in Clinical Embryology course. Students have voted her ‘Best Post Graduate Teacher” at the Oxford Students’ Union Annual Teaching Awards 2019. A very deserving winner who inspires, challenges and engages our students. Well done Celine! Celine Jones won ‘Best Post Graduate Teacher” at the Oxford Students’ Union Annual Teaching Awards 2019. As voted by students: “Celine Jones is one of most inspiring women that I have ever met in her determination, work ethic, and care for others. She is exactly the type of teacher that I would hope all teachers to be in order to facilitate the development of better students and future scientists.”

2018

Course staff were awarded a joint runners-up OxTALENT Award for the use of integrated online teaching tools: developing deeper learning styles and interactive feedback routes.

In September 2018, the course staff received a second Bronze Employer Award for continued engagement with local schools.

2017

Dr Rebecca Dragovic was awarded the “Most Acclaimed Lecturer” award by Oxford University’s Student Union.

Bronze Employer Award was awarded to course staff for excellent engagement with local schools.

2015

In 2015, Dr Kevin Coward received a commendation from the Medical Sciences Division, University of Oxford, for his consistently outstanding teaching and sustained commitment to course design and development of novel methodologies for practical classes, and for inspirational engagement with teaching and quality assurance at Divisional and University Levels.  

2014

In 2014, the course staff won a second OxTALENT Award for the design of a novel electronic video-enhanced poster projected on a mobile interactive whiteboard. 

2013

In May 2012, the innovative teaching style deployed on the Oxford MSc in Clinical Embryology was recognised by the HEA in the form of an HEA Teaching Development Grant to help develop novel methods for teaching practical laboratory skills. This model allowed us to equip our laboratory with interactive whiteboard technology and develop a new laboratory session in which students design and execute their own ‘mock’ laboratory practical class in front of the peers, thereby gaining key experience of delivering laboratory teaching in their own right. Development of this new model led to an OxTALENT (Teaching and Learning Enhanced with New Technology) Award in 2013 for the innovative use of interactive whiteboard technology in the wet laboratory.

2012 In 2012, the course won a ‘Major Educator Award’ in the University of Oxford’s Teaching Excellence Scheme, for an exceptional contribution to postgraduate education in the medical sciences.
