Professor Yvonne de Kort Lecturer of the year
At the opening of the academic year, Rector Magnificus Frank Baaijens presented several nominees for the Educational Award Master.
Professor Yvonne de Kort and professor Alexander Rosemann, both leading senior professors in one of the key research programs related to ILI were both nominated. Yvonne won.
In her pitch, Yvonne de Kort spoke about how she has developed as a lecturer. "First of all I had to discover my passion for my field, then I set about turning abstract theories into something concrete. At a later stage I paid more attention to my interaction with students and after that my lectures became more personal. Now I work in a very reflective way, wondering things like: apart from my own enthusiasm, what helps students the most?"
