Teaching prizes

Best teacher of the year

Pia Møller Martensen
was awarded the prize as the
best teacher of year at the
Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics

MBG's student council (MoGenS) gives the following reasons for awarding the prize:

A questionnaire was sent out to all the students attending classes at MBG and 141 answered. To ensure a fair statistic, 10 votes or more were necessary to receive a nomination for the two categories. We got a lot of good feedback for both, and among the lecturers it was a very close race. Therefore I would also like to mention Lars Sottrup and Lene Nejsum from the top.

The winner of lecturer of the year goes to a person who is always well-prepared and structured, and very good at presenting the curriculum for the students.

We are proud to award the golden pointer 2012 to Pia Møller Martensen

Best student teacher of the year

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

MBG's student council (MoGenS) gives the following reasons for awarding the prize:

Learning is not only improved by good lecturers, but also by skilled instructors, who help the students on a daily basis and also act out as role models.

The award for student teacher of the year goes to a person who taught two subjects this year and scored highest in both. We also had the pleasure of him as an instructor and know him as intelligent, helpful and well-prepared but just as important he is also funny and makes the classes a lot more interesting.

We are proud to give the golden pointer 2012 to Janus Asbjørn Schatz-Jakobsen
