Congratulations to Dr Nigel Lowe who has been awarded a Vice-Chancellor's Teaching Award for 2012. Following Dr Seishi Shimizu, Dr Jason Lynam, Dr Andrew Parsons and Professor David Smith, Nigel is the fifth member of the Department of Chemistry to win an individual award, which recognises and rewards excellence in teaching at York.
The awards panel commended Nigel on his innovative approaches to transferable skills teaching across the Department, and his use of e-learning to support practical Chemistry. They were also impressed by his engagement with the UK chemical education community through publications and collaborative projects.
Nigel is a champion of teaching within the University through his work for the Forum for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching.
