Teaching prizes

The teacher of the year and studenter teacher of the year 2014 were nominated at the Annual Meeting of the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics on Friday 15 August 2014:

Best teacher of the year

Gregers Rom Andersen
was awarded the prize as the
best teacher of year 2014 at the
Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics

MBG's student council's (MoGenS) reason for awarding the prize to Gregers Rom Andersen:

"At MBG we are lucky to have a large number of amazing lecturers, who manage to even make 8 am classes interesting. This was also reflected in the generally very high score of most teachers on the questionnaire.

It was a close run, and honorable mentions goes out to Lars Sottrup-Jensen who managed to steal both the 2nd and 3rd place, and Lotte Bjergbæk who received the 4th place.

Today’s winner is not only very dedicated man whose passion for his subject is clearly evident from his teaching but also seems like a teacher who really wants his students to excel rather than just be there: Gregers Rom Andersen".

Best student teacher of the year

Janus Asbjørn Schatz-Jakobsen
was awarded the prize as the
best student teacher of year 2014 at the
Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics

The reasons for awarding the prize will be given shortly by MBG's student council (MoGenS).

"Among many great instructors one person managed to climb all the way to the top. 
I myself have had the pleasure to experience todays' winner in action. 
He has an incredible ability to explain complex structures and forms through physical illustrations and convert them into common daily objects. This together gives the students greater understanding. For the third time in a row the student teacher award goes to Janus Asbjørn Schatz-JaKobsen."
