Ceremony 25 June
The Education Award will be handed out on Tuesday, 25 June at 16:00 in the Compagnietheater, Kloveniersburgwal 50. During the ceremony, the lecturers and/or students will present the nominated courses and will attempt to convince the jury that their course should win the Education Award 2019. The ceremony will be followed by a pub quiz and drinks.
In contrast with previous years, nominations are no longer the exclusive prerogative of the programme committees. Each student and employee can nominate one (or more) course(s) for the Education Award 2019. Aside from this, there are a few other changes:
These changes were introduced because education belongs to all students and employees. Therefore, we also want to involve students and employees who are not members of the Programme Committees.
From all submissions, the jury (composed of lecturers and students from Humanities) will select three Bacherlor's- and three Master's courses. During the ceremony on 25 June, the lecturers of the six nominated courses will present their courses to the public and jury. During each presentation, at least one student will share his/her experiences with the nominated course. Subsequently, after a short deliberation, the jury will announce the two winning courses. The jury will explain its choice in a report. The winners will receive a €1000 cheque from the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, Prof. Fred Weerman.
