University Award for Education Winner: Josie Briscoe
7 June 2017
'In recognition of excellence in education and the enhancement of the student experience.'
The Bristol Teaching Awards were held on Tuesday 6th June in the Great Hall of Wills Memorial Building, as you may have seen as a school we had one colleague nominated for the Science Faculty's University Award for Education. Our nominee was Dr Josie Briscoe. Josie was one of the three nominations for the 'Science Faculty award', and each of our 6 Faculties gives out one of these awards.
Josie was nominated for her 'innovative ideas and keen eye for detail' in relation to the 'Jamboree Days' that she had helped start three years ago to provide a 'scalable, sustainable and efficient means of improving assessment skills, with Josie's ceasless enthusiasm, energy and commitment vital to its success'. We were delighted that, on the night, Josie was announced as the winner of the Science Faculty's Award
The awards are a joint venture between the University and Bristol Students' Union, Six awards available, one per faculty to a member/team of academic, support or technical staff withing the faculties who meet the criteria. They are ultimately decided by a panel of Bristol SU Education Officers and the Student Faculty Representatives. The awards are a chance to reward and recognise members of staff who have made an outstanding contribution to the learning experience and support for students.
