Paul Fairchild (Sir William Dunn School of Pathology) - to extend his programme of outreach work  (and specifically the active learning workshops with GCSE and A Level students in and around Oxford) in order to obtain sufficient data for investigation of the impact of active learning on students’ aspirations to study science, and whether this approach remains a significant factor in their choice of degree course and institution.

Elspeth Garman (Department of Biochemistry) - to update and extend the existing maths course companion booklet for incoming Biochemistry students. This revised booklet will be more finely tuned to the students' needs and will represent a significant improvement compared to current resources. There may even be scope to extend the booklet’s use to include material relevant to other honour schools. The booklet will contain the necessary maths, but the topics will be introduced through examples of significant applications, followed by the mathematical tools required to solve them. The result will then be interpreted in the context of the problem. It is also planned to develop an on-line version of the booklet, which can be updated easily and provide for better feedback and interaction with new students.

Peter Sullivan (Paediatrics) - to support the implementation of peer observation of teaching throughout the department and to evaluate its effectiveness.
