The 2018 Otto Hutter Prize has been awarded to Julia Choate at Monash University, Australia. The award was made to recognise Julia’s commitment to enhancing and expanding the educational experience for students at her own institution, and beyond, through the innovative use of technology.
Julia commented “I feel lucky to teach physiology, as most of my students are extremely interested in the functions of the human body. I create learning environments (interactive guided-inquiry lectures and team-based workshops) that encourage student participation and active engagement with their learning. I mould the physiology concepts so that they are pertinent to students’ lives, and incorporate hands-on practical sessions to consolidate knowledge and develop employability and research skills.”
