Background and Objectives As teaching technologyadvances, medical education is increasingly using digital mediums and exploringinstructional models such as the flipped classroom and blended learningcourses, where the in-class taught sessions are more groups on contentdelivered before class. Early evidence suggestslectures and foundational material...
Article
Teaching practical chemistry skills remotely is not a task that would have been high on the agenda only a few months ago. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, students around the world are having to work from home, and the chemistry education community has been forced to adapt to the new circumstances. In response, we discuss the use of simu...

The Medical Sciences Division (MSD) at the University of Oxford has a strong background in online assessment with Questionmark Perception. However, for the MSD, Perception does not fully deliver all of the potential benefits of e-assessment. A number of drivers for change are identified: authoring; performance and delivery; costs; reporting; and fl...

Farmers in the southern Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania have a strong preference for maize as their staple crop and have resisted attempts to introduce sorghum as an alternative in spite of the high drought risk associated with maize production. This paper presents the results of a seven-year period of field experiments to assess the benefits of a m...
Article
A lack of technical knowledge has been identified as one of the primary factors preventing widespread adoption of rainwater harvesting amongst resource-poor farmers in semi-arid Tanzania. Experiments can fill this gap and help in the assessment and design of improved cropping systems, but the transfer of the results in time and space is difficult....
Article
The application of process-based hydrological models requires the estimation of a number of soil hydraulic properties that are difficult time-consuming and costly to measure. This would have severely limited the use of these models had it not been for the development of pedotransfer (PTFs). PTFs are regression equations that relate readily availabl...
Article
This is a conference paper The University of Oxford is a large, traditional, research-led, collegiate institution. The Medical Sciences Division (University of Oxford) includes undergraduate degrees (Medical, Physiological Sciences, Experimental Psychology, Biochemistry), masters and doctoral students. Clinical students are based at hospitals and h...
