LATEST NEWS: Celine Jones, Natalia Barkalina and Kevin Coward of the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology have won a University of Oxford Teaching Excellence Award.  They designed an interactive infographic poster using whiteboard technology for viva voce examinations to help students present their work in a more interactive manner, and to help advertise research at the IRS. Earlier this year, they also received an OxTALENT award (Teaching and Learning Enhanced with New Technology) for its innovative design. This is a great achievement as this is the third consecutive year that Celine Jones and Kevin Coward have been honoured at the University of Oxford Teaching Excellence Awards.
