Olympics get closer
Posted on 27/07/2012
Dr Ian McFazdean, Undergraduate Dean, was a proud bearer of the Olympic torch as he carried the Flame through Islington on Thursday, 26th of July. According to the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay site, the reasons for Ian's nominations were:
"Ian was awarded the Teaching Excellence Award for the School of Biomedical Sciences for the second year running. A common reflection from students is that Dr McFadzean's lectures are some of the clearest and most interesting that they had attended and that they had been delivered in such a way that maximised their enjoyment of the learning experience. In his role as Chair of the School Undergraduate Board of Examiners and Dean of Undergraduate Education, Dr McFadzean has been responsible for the introduction of many innovative developments to teaching."
On its route through Islington, Dr McFazdean was one of 18 Torchbearers. Among the other Torchbearers were King's LLB student Laura Arowolo. Abigiail Morris, a Pharmacology PhD student, was also a Torchbearer today in Lambeth.
