Learning Support

Ms Vivien Shaw (Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics) – for going far beyond the expected duties (as the Mortuary Supervisor) by stepping in to teach third- year Medical students during the intensive Preclinical Anatomy course, as well as first and second-year students. She has also invested a significant amount of time and skill in preparation of an extensive number of prosections to aid student learning of some particularly difficult areas of anatomy. She is receiving a Learning Support Award in recognition for her considerable enthusiasm and diligence in performing these extra duties tirelessly.

Commendations

Associate Professor Helen Christian (Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics) - for being a key figure in the reorganisation of the second year Applied Physiology and Pharmacology course and for being an innovative and highly gifted teacher to first, second and third-year students following the Biomedical Sciences programme, who introduced interactive teaching session for the endocrinology course and has revived the placenta practical class.

Professor Stephen Goodwin (Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics) - for developing novel teaching for both Prelims and Part I students following the Biomedical Sciences programme, which has been met with acclaim in student feedback sessions. The numbers selecting his Part I option have steadily grown, providing further indication of the high esteem in which his teaching is held by the students.

Professor Jan Schnupp (Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics)  - for enthusiastic teaching and great rapport with Biomedical Sciences students  in the Year 1 providing an excellent foundation on which students can build as the year progresses.

Associate Professor Pawel Swietach (Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics) – for contributing to the high quality of teaching in the FHS course by delivering outstanding lectures and seminars as a part of the Cardiac, Renal and Respiratory Biology Advanced Option for third-year Medicine and Biological Sciences students which are regularly praised for their clarity as well as the engaging, approachable, witty and cogent style.  

Dr Robert Wilkins (Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics) – for the sustained record of excellence and commitment to his teaching duties delivered to third-year Medicine and Biomedical Sciences students who repeatedly report on his unparalleled ability to make complex material engaging and easy to digest thanks to clarity of approach and attention to detail.

 

Congratulations to all of the awardees.
