Dr Katy Clough
Katy's portfolio was an outstanding piece of reflective, scholarly writing in which she critically evaluated teaching practices at Oxford. In particular, the course review and course design elements of the portfolio showed an exemplary level of understanding of effective educational practice.
Katy’s research focuses on numerical solutions to Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, in cosmological and astrophysical contexts. She teaches General Relativity to undergraduate physics students and gives graduate lectures on Numerical Relativity. She is passionate about helping students develop physical intuition in this counterintuitive topic, and making the link to current research applications.
Dr Sally Anne Shiels
Sally's portfolio submission, which included Panopto recordings, was an outstanding piece of work in which Sally presented detailed, scholarly analyses of various developments in medical education. In particular, the focus on articulating inclusive teaching practice in support of student diversity was exemplary.
