Prof. Malvina Nissim has been elected University of Groningen Lecturer of the Year 2016. The Assistant Professor Computational Linguistics at the Faculty of Arts was awarded both the Jury Prize and the Audience Award on Education Day. Prof. dr. Hans van Ees, chair of the jury, praised Nissim's talent for her enthousiastic, interactive and energetic way of teaching. Her lectures are both analytical and exciting and they invoke curiosity. Nissim received € 7,500, donated by the COWOG Fund, a work of art and an invitation to develop and teach a course unit at the Honours College.

‘I feel pretty awesome’, said Nissim after the award ceremony. ‘The best feeling came with the first email of the faculty nomination. If my students think it is worth nominating me, than that is wat makes me very happy. Because that is were my effort goes: to my students.’

Audience Award and Web Award

The Audience Award was also won by Nissim. Dr. Barend van Leeuwen of the Faculty Law received most votes in the internet election and thus won the Web Award.
