2 February 2012 - Education Day: Election & Seminiar
Who is the best lecturer of the University of Groningen? Each of our nine faculties has nominated a candidate (FEB has nominated FEB lecturer of the year
Martijn van der Steen ) and all of these nominees will showcase their talent in a mini lecture on Thursday 2 February.
The event is open to all staff and students – you can come watch it live or view it via the University website. Don’t forget to vote for your favourite lecturer! The votes from the audience in the hall will count towards the Audience Awards, whereas internet viewers vote for the Web Award. The University of Groningen Lecturer of the Year 2011 will be elected by a jury.
The event will start at 3 p.m. and finish around 5.30 p.m. – feel free to come in during the intermissions too. For further information, see www.rug.nl/docentvanhetjaar
The Lecturer of the Year Award is part of the Education Day and will be preceded by a seminar entitled Onderwijs Leeft!, which will, needless to say, focus particularly on current topics in the field of education. Both lecturers and other staff as well as students are welcome at the seminar from 11.30 a.m. to 2.45 p.m. For more information and to register go to: www.rug.nl/dagvanhetonderwijs
