Last Thursday, February 2nd, assistant professor Evelien Croonen won the jury award for Best Practices in Teaching and Learning at the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB). Lecturer & postdoctoral researcher
Gert-Jan Romensen won the audience award. They both received the awards for their innovative forms of teaching that go beyond the regular teaching platforms.
The winners were nominated by their programmes committees, which FEB has for each study programme. The committees looked for best teaching practices, i.e., the practices that are the most inspiring, relevant and well-considered.
The jury was very impressed with both best practices. Croonen, assistant professor at the department of Innovation Managment & Strategy, won with her ‘Small Business and Start-Up Safari’, in which students visit companies. “Croonen's Small Business and Start-Up Safari has a very well-balanced link between theory, practice and the working field, employability is highly embedded and the engagement of students is considered very high”, the jury said.
As the winner of the jury award, Croonen will go on to the university wide elections for Best Practices in Teaching and Learning during UG's Education Festival (27th till 30th of March, 2023).
Romensen, lecturer & researtcher at the department of Economics, Econometrics & Finance, won with his MicroApp, an application that Economics & Business Economics students can use to practise parts of their course microeconomics. The jury said: “The opportunity for students to blend practice with subject matter at different levels of understanding really appealed to both the jury and the audience. The time investment made by Romensen's team on this is impressive and we are happy that the audience acknowledged this.”
