School of Biochemistry wins University Teaching Awards
14 June 2018
Each year the Bristol Teaching Awards recognise members of staff who have made an outstanding contribution to teaching, the provision of support for students and education more generally.
The awards are a joint venture between Bristol SU and the University. Candidates from each Faculty were nominated in February and March for either staff-led or student-led awards which were presented at the awards ceremony on June 5.
This year the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences did extremely well with Nigel Savery, from the School of Biochemistry, receiving the Students’ Award for Outstanding Teaching, highlighting his excellent and passionate contribution to teaching. This is Nigel’s second student commendation after being selected by students for the ‘Best of Bristol’ lectures in 2016.
Alice Robson, Kara van Aelst and Mark Dillingham, who make up the Biochemistry MSci Research Training Unit Team, received the University Award for Education, for developing and delivering the very successful Research Training Unit on the new MSci programme. The Research Training Unit is a new unit to prepare Year 3 MSci students for lab based research before they undertake their extended research project in Year 4.
