Faculty winners announced for Lecturer of the Year

27 March 2017

The faculty winners of the UvA Lecturer of the Year award have been determined. More than 1,800 votes were cast between Tuesday, 14 February and Thursday, 2 March.

Faculty winners

The votes were counted for each faculty and the following lecturers have won:

Faculty of Economics and Business  Torsten Jochem
Faculty of Humanities  Mark Deuze
Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences  Hylke de Vries
Faculty of Science  Marco Swaen
Faculty of Law  Antoinette Muntjewerff

Dining with Executive Board

The Central Student Council and ASVA Student Union will put each of the faculty winners in the limelight. The faculty winners will also be invited by the CSR and ASVA to join the Executive Board for a celebratory dinner on 29 March.

Personal messages to lecturers

This year’s elections are dedicated to the theme of ‘Heart for education’. As a token of appreciation for their favourite lecturer, students who voted were given the opportunity to add a personal message to their nomination. Each lecturer has been given the personal messages that were written to him or her.

What happens next?

The faculty winners will be judged by a jury consisting of students from all faculties. The winner will be announced later this year and will be honoured during the opening of the new academic year. Over the course of the next academic year, the elected Lecturer of the Year will serve as an ambassador for good teaching and education at the University of Amsterdam.
