ASCEPT Gillian Shenfield Early Educator Award

[eyesonly logged=”in”]The ASCEPT Early Educator Award was established in 2012 and is awarded annually to an ASCEPT full member to recognise and reward initiatives in pharmacology education that lead to enhanced student outcomes. In 2013, the Award was renamed the ASCEPT Gillian Shenfield Early Educator Award. Applicants must have been members of ASCEPT for at least 2 years and at the level of Lecturer Level B (or equivalent) or below. Applicants can be involved in any aspect of teaching in pharmacology or toxicology, either basic or clinical, and should demonstrate that they have changed their teaching practices to improve learning outcomes amongst their students and gathered evidence to assess the impact of the change.

ASCEPT strongly encourages Pharmacology Departments to identify and nominate suitable academic staff in the area of teaching and learning. We also welcome self-nominations.


To apply for this prize applicants must:

  • Select the appropriate category on the abstract submission page.
  • In addition to a standard abstract, submit online an Application Package (in PDF format) at the same time as abstract submission.
  • A statement from the applicant regarding their current appointment and level as well as the length of time they have been teaching any aspect of pharmacology, toxicology or therapeutics. Any education-related publications can be included (optional).

All applications will be judged by a panel nominated by the ASCEPT Education Forum. The successful applicant will be invited to present their challenge at the Education Session during the ASCEPT Annual Scientific Meeting. Other applicants may be allocated a poster or oral presentation as decided by the Scientific Advisory Committee.

The deadline for nominations for 2016 coincides with that for submitting abstracts to the ASCEPT Annual Scientific Meeting.
