Biosciences staff win UCL Provost's Teaching Award 2014

20 May 2014


A warm congratulations to some of our Biosciences staff for winning one of the elite UCL Provost’s Teaching Awards for 2014.

An award for ‘Team Collaboration and Achievement in Teaching’ will be presented to the team of:

  • Dr Andrea Townsend Nicholson
  • Dr Amanda Cain
  • Charmian Dawson
  • Dr Chris Taylorson
  • Dr Suzanne Ruddy
  • Professor Elizabeth Shephard.

Comment from the group of the award:

“The research department of Structural & Molecular Biology has for many years been an early adopter of innovative technologies to enhance the student experience and we have been strongly supported in these initiatives by our students. In our most recent endeavour, we have implemented novel ways of enhancing the practical experience in the curriculum from entry through to graduation for undergraduate students taking modules in biochemistry and molecular biology. This has been achieved by combining e-learning and wet laboratory experimentation and has helped to help develop and consolidate the experimental skills necessary for young scientists studying biochemistry, molecular biology and biotechnology.”

20% of SMB staff have now won a UCL Provost's Teaching Award.  Also – Andrea, Liz, Charmian and Amanda share, with their colleague Andrea Sella in Chemistry, the distinction of being the only staff in UCL to have received this prize twice, as all were recipients of an inaugural award in 2007.

The winners will be presented with their awards at a ceremony due to take place on Monday 9 June at the Institute of Child Health, Guildford Street.  Tickets will be made available to UCL staff later this month.

Well done to the team!
