On 30th June, six OxTALENT prize winners were announced and celebrated at a champagne reception. OUCS support not just the technology but also the people involved in using IT in learning and teaching. Each year OxTALENT awards are given to staff and students who have been innovative and talented in the ways they apply and use the technology to enhance the teaching experience or support specific learning outcomes. 2009 has brought us another fine group of prize winners, drawn from disciplines across the University. This year prizes were sponsored by Apple, Toshiba and QAssociates.
Not content with being Director of Computing Systems and Services, Dr Stuart Lee is also an Oxford English lecturer and has been awarded a National Teaching Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy. The award is for his work bringing medieval texts and other literature to life for students through modern technology.
