Two members of the Department of Earth Sciences have been shortlisted for the Oxford University Students Union (OUSU) 2017 Teaching Awards.
Dr Nick Tosca, Associate Professor of Sedimentary Geology and Fellow in Earth Sciences at St Peter’s College, has been shortlisted for the ‘Most Acclaimed Lecturer‘ Award. The award recognises a lecturer’s ability to convey complicated material at a pace that is engaging to everyone yet leaves no one behind, expressing visible enthusiasm for the lecture subject, and making themselves approachable and responsive to students’ questions.
Anna Bidgood, DPhil Candidate in Earth Sciences at University College, and alumna of St Anne’s College, has been shortlisted for the ‘Best Postgraduate Teacher‘ Award. This is a new award for 2017, which recognises postgraduate students’ contributions to undergraduate teaching, and rewards enthusiasm, knowledge, timely feedback and student engagement.
The winners of each category will be announced at an awards ceremony on 11 May 2017.
Dr Conall Mac Niocaill was awarded ‘Most Acclaimed Lecturer’ in 2013.
