Interview with Karel Brookhuis on the Lecturer of the Year Award
A few weeks ago, we talked with the Education Director of the Psychology Department, professor Karel Brookhuis, about the Lecturer of the Year Award, how candidates are selected at our faculty, and how he sees the future of education. You can listen to the interview in two parts at the end of this post.
The Lecturer of the Year Award is a tradition that started in 2007 at the RUG. Each year, the 9 (now 10 and soon to be 11) faculties of the University nominate their candidates who go on to compete for the honour to be named the best lecturer of the year.
Last month, the 9 nominees for 2014 competed in the Aula of the University’s Academy Building, an event that is streamed live every year, and after the dust had settled and the votes counted, professor Anton Scheurink of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences emerged as the overall winner.
