Catherine Wager winner of the Pilkington Prize for excellence in teaching 2018

last modified Feb 12, 2018 02:19 PM

We are delighted to offer Catherine Wager our warmest congratulations on the award of a prestigious Pilkington Prize by the University.

Our vision for the Pauline Brown Clinical Skills Centre for veterinary students in the Department of Veterinary Medicine has been realised by Catherine Wager in the 30 months since she was appointed to the new role of Clinical Skills Facilitator. She has worked tirelessly to transform an empty suite of rooms into a hub of activity and learning, and has developed the teaching and learning of clinical skills vastly beyond what was initially envisaged.  Her co-operation with academic staff, application of her own veterinary nursing skills, and insight into the learning needs of students has been second to none; it has contributed to new academic research, and has led to innovation in the Department’s learning and teaching provision. The feedback from students is unanimously positive, both as regards their enjoyment of learning new skills, and about the relaxed and supportive learning environment that Catherine has created. The Department is very fortunate to have such a talented and dedicated member of staff, and one who is an excellent role model for students and colleagues alike.
Many Congratulations (and huge thanks and appreciation) to Catherine!

We are carrying out an important research project into the development of the nostrils in brachycephalic (short-faced) dog breeds. The breeds that we are looking at in this study are French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs and Pugs. 
If you are a new owner of one of these breeds and would like to help us by taking part in this study, please take a look at the following page:
