What makes teacher inspiring?

The way in which lectures are taught has a major influence on how well they are appreciated and how much students learn from them. Lecturers face the challenge of inspiring students every day and were further challenged to do so during the lockdown. But what makes a teacher inspiring?

Teacher of the Year competition

Students vote for their favourite teacher in the Teacher of the Year election, these votes lead to a longlist of 15 teachers with the most votes. A student jury then deliberates on the longlist, and makes a shortlist of 5 teachers. From these 5, a winner is selected.

In addition to the honour, the winner (and the others on the shortlist) receive a sum of money that can be used for new educational goals. This way, we work on the continuous improvement of education.
