The basis for the appointment is that Peter is seen by the students as a very engaged and empathic teacher who conveys the academic material in an inspiring manner. He knows how to acquaint himself with the students’ qualifications and successfully puts into play knowledge acquired in previous semesters.
Peter has the ability at an extremely high level to pass on his unequalled enthusiasm for his field to the students. He puts an extraordinary effort into his teaching by among others presenting the material via carefully self-made notes which shows his interest in the students’ learning as well as his academic passion. Peter very much stimulates the students to independent and critical reflection which is seen in his generally inquiring and reflective way of conveying the academic material. Peter deserves the title as “Teacher of the Year” because he is an inclusive and highly likeable person who serves as a significant role model for the students. In addition, he is a highly qualified teacher who sets the best conditions for good problem-based teaching.
