Dr. John Rochford wins Provost's Teaching Award

One of the six winners of this year's tightly contested Provost's Teaching Awards was Dr John Rochford, the Associate Professor in Wildlife Biology in Zoology. He was also honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his huge service to college for his enormous contribution to every aspect of teaching over the years. He is responsible for many of the innovations in teaching which we all now take for granted, such as anonymous marking and Freshman tutorials, and he also oversaw the modularisation of the Freshman years. He carries an enormous load of co-ordination and organisational administrative duties for the science courses at Freshman level and the degree courses in our School, and carries out those duties to an incredibly high standard. He is a truly inspirational teacher and a very worthy winner of both awards.
