Provost's Teaching Awards 2012

The outstanding contribution made by UCL School of Pharmacy staff to the student learning experience was recognised in the recent Provost’s Teaching Awards 2012.

Each year Deans, in consultation with heads of departments, are invited to nominate staff for these awards. The awards ceremony was held on July 10th where Provost Malcolm Grant presented 11 awards including the following to UCL School of Pharmacy staff:

Team Collaboration and Achievement in Teaching: Dr David West and UCL School of Pharmacy

The School won the award for its Integrated Therapeutics Project. This project is a novel approach to developing student awareness of the interconnectedness of the diverse subjects underpinning pharmacy. It is a distance learning project employing a unique combination of wiki technology to develop topic pages and their interconnections by the cohort, followed by individual concept mapping to generate a localised summary that is presented for rapid visual assessment by a committee with combined expertise in the range of underpinning subjects. The concept is scalable and the principles are readily applicable to other disciplines that have a broad base of supporting subjects where students tend to separate their learning into compartments.

Whilst this project was conceived and led by Dr D West, e-learning coordinator and Dr A Wilderspin, MPharm course coordinator for Options and Projects, its success critically stems from the commitment of the entire team both during development and continued implementation.
