Rea is Learning Development Officer at Worcester College.
Rea’s exceptional portfolio was powerfully written. Throughout the portfolio, Rea centred student voices, not just to evaluate her teaching, but to inform her course design. Rea paid close attention to inclusivity, and how to support a diversity of learners in teaching. The module Rea designed, ‘Contemporary movements to decolonise in the UK’, brought together her work on academic literacies and decolonisation. Her design decisions were underpinned by educational evidence, and an astute understanding of how assessment and feedback shape learning. In one formative assessment, Rea planned for students to annotate the rhetorical moves of the writing they were submitting, prompting reflection on the writing process.

Eleanor Hogg is Academic Junior Doctor at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Medical Education Researcher at OxSTaR, and Tutor in Neuroscience and Clinical Medicine at Magdalen College.
Eleanor’s portfolio was impressively scholarly and thought-provoking. She used the PGCert as an opportunity to explore the evidence base for different teaching approaches, making excellent use of educational evidence to inform her teaching decisions. Eleanor’s portfolio also cogently analysed different approaches to evaluating teaching to judge which would be best placed to develop her teaching. For her course design, Eleanor created a Special Study Module in Clinical Genetics. This innovative module distilled concepts and skills authentic to a clinical genetics career into an intensive block for final year medical students, drawing on virtual reality to build communication skills. The module was inclusively designed, and thoughtful about how to use assessment to motivate and reward students’ learning.
