The Divisional Teaching Awards were announced at the MPLS Summer Party by the Head of Division Prof. Alex Halliday. Dr Christopher Palmer, Departmental Lecturer in Physics, was awarded the ‘Project Award’ for innovative teaching, worth £3k. Dr Palmer has been running the annual Oxford Undergraduate Physics Conference since 2007, when it was initially funded with an earlier Teaching award. Dr Palmer's new project will extend this concept to an Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Conference, tackling themes of broad interest across the University.
