Dr Elizabeth Frazer and Dr Scot Peterson have won an Oxford Teaching Award

Dr Elizabeth Frazer and Dr Scot Peterson have won an Oxford Teaching Award, to acknowledge their use of WebLearn to support a course or programme of study. In developing WebLearn for teaching politics they have experimented with different tools to see what works best for communication, feedback and interaction. The chat room in particular proved very popular on the night of the recent general election and for the protracted discussions which followed.

The awards will be officially presented at a ceremony on 19 October.

Scot Peterson is Lecturer in Politics, Corpus Christi and Balliol Colleges.
