Professor John Peters, Professor of Pharmacology has been awarded the Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teaching at the University of Dundee.
"I am utterly delighted to recieve a Chancellor's Award from the University. To be deemed by my colleagues to have made an outstadning contribution to teaching is a great and very generous honour that I truely appreciate. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to teach thousands of students at Dundee for over thirty years. Believing that I may have helped them in a small way achieve success in the University and beyond is a source of great satisfaction. I have been lucky to work with colleagues in the Schools of Life Sciences and Medicine who have inspired and generously supported me over decades, but my greatest thanks goes to my wife and daughters for their forbearance in tolerating my irritating academic indulgences!" said John on his award.
Winners of the Chancellor's Award must demonstrate enhancement to practice, sustainable change and impact as a result of their teaching. Furthermore, the Award demands evidence of support for transformational learning and a legacy from the changes and impact which the winners effected.
Professor Peters has taught both undergraduates in the Biomedical and Biological Sciences programmes led by the D'Arcy Thompson Unit, medical students at the School of Medicine and dental students at the School of Dentistry.
