Nominate a Teacher of the Year 2010
TEACHER OF THE YEAR 2010
The Student Union and the University of Turku are looking for propositions for the Teacher of the Year 2010. This year the emphasis is on international teachers. Two students at minimum can propose a teacher worth awarding. In addition, the employees of faculties and institutes, as well as subject-oriented departmental and faculty organisations can make these propositions. The chance of the teacher to be elected is increased if students and staff make the proposition together. The winner is chosen by the Rector of the University of Turku and the Chairperson of the Executive Board of the Student Union.
When making a proposition you can pay attention to the following points:
- inspirative touch in teaching (inspiration, counseling, versatile methods in teaching),
- everyday teaching skills (developing interaction, collecting and using feedback in teaching, the ability to teach and express oneself in the international environment), or
- developing one’s subject field in teaching and research.
There can also be other grounds beside these. For a good suggestion, it is more important to mention the personal strengths of the teacher.
All suggestions should be sent to the Student Union by Friday, 6 August. You can send your proposition by e-mail to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org or bring it to the office of the Student Union (Rehtoripellonkatu 4A, 1st floor), mark the envelope as “Teacher of the Year 2010”.
We hope to get many good propositions from all the fields of study in the University! The Teacher of the Year and the Course of the Year 2010 will be announced in the opening carnival of the Student Union on Thursday, 2 September.
