I have seen first-hand that colleagues across Oxford are pushing back the boundaries of education. These awards recognise the commitment of our staff and students, and shine a light on the significant contributions to educational innovation and enhancement that is taking place across the University.

Professor Martin Williams, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Education


This year, what was previously five separate groups of awards, including the Vice-Chancellor's Education Awards, became a University-wide celebration for staff across Oxford, with 11 categories in strategically important areas. 

Categories include three education and student awards:

  1. Support for Students Award: for groups of colleagues who have contributed to supporting students' development.
  2. Innovative Teaching and Assessment Award: for groups of colleagues who have implemented new approaches to education at Oxford.
  3. Inclusive Teaching and Assessment Award: for groups of colleagues who have adopted approaches that make teaching more inclusive for different groups of students.

Nominations closed on Monday 19 February.
