Every year, the School of Engineering honours a teacher or group of teachers for meritorious teaching work with the Award for Achievements in Teaching. The school's students and staff are invited to submit their nominations for the award annually. The winner of the award is decided by the dean based on a proposal by the vice dean for education.

The selection process seeks meritorious teaching based on one or several of the following themes: 

  • collaboration and co-teaching and support for teacher well-being 
  • supporting students’ well-being in teaching and guidance and the availability of guidance 
  • course development: diversity and suitability of teaching and assessment methods, evaluating students’ workload in the course, and the systematic collection and utilization of student feedback in the development of teaching
  • pedagogically considered utilization of education technology in teaching and guidance 
  • developing one's own teaching competence 
  • implementing interdisciplinarity in teaching; participants, subject taught and teachers 

In 2020 and 2021, the award considerations will also note the implementation of remote teaching during the pandemic. Special attention is given to interactivity and flexibility of teaching as well as student feedback.
