Teaching Award for Melanie Rupflin

28 June 2022

Trinity Fellow and Tutor in Maths Melanie Rupflin has been recognised for her outstanding teaching by Oxford's Mathematics, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS) Division.

The MPLS Divisional Teaching Award Scheme celebrates success, and recognises and rewards excellence in innovative teaching. The Teaching Award Scheme is administered by the MPLS Divisional Office and awards are made, on merit, across the departments by a cross-departmental panel chaired by the Associate Head of Division (Academic).  Professor Rupflin was one of eight winners for individual awards chosen from among 89 nominees; she received a student nomination which was strongly endorsed by the Mathematical Institute.

The citation for Professor Rupflin's MPLS award noted: 'Melanie has consistently received excellent student feedback from a range of courses. She pays attention whilst preparing her lecture material and with delivering classes, with positive results for students and ensuring content is clear to understand. This has required particular versatility over the last two years, with all the changes in delivery mode imposed by the pandemic.'
