The Medical Sciences Division Teaching Excellence Awards scheme recognises and rewards excellence in teaching, supervision, the organisation and development of teaching, and support for teaching and learning, within a research-intensive environment. 

Our Department had two successes in the 'Projects' category:

Dr Christopher-James Harvey, Dr Damion Young, Dr Nicola Barclay; Dr Sumathi Sekaran, Dr Dimitri Gavriloff, Dr Simon Kyle from the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (The Oxford Online Programme in Sleep Medicine: Remote Proctoring for Formative Assessment) - This project trials ProctorExam software for remote invigilation of examinations, allowing students to take timed assessments remotely as part of the distance-learning programme. The software will be trialled with formative assessments (which do not contribute towards the final degree outcome).

Dr Natalie Voets and Prof Mark Jenkinson from the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (Clinical MRI Neuroimaging workshop) - The project supports setting up a 2-day teaching workshop to accompany a new online course in translational neuroimaging aimed in particular at trainee clinicians.
