Outreach and widening participation

The OxTALENT annual awards recognise members of the University who have made innovative use of digital technology to:

  • Foster learning and academic practice at either undergraduate or postgraduate level;
  • Develop more effective links between teaching and research; or
  • Improve impact through outreach and public engagement.

The competition is open to all students and staff, and awards can be given either to individuals or to groups. In addition to the academic divisions, we welcome entries from the University's libraries, art galleries and museums, and from administrative and support staff.
