Teacher of the Year

I am proud and happy to announce that I was elected Teacher of the Year of Tilburg University.

In teaching, I hold on to a famous Dutch saying: “beter goed gejat, dan slecht bedacht”, or “it’s better to steal something good, than to come up with something bad”. There are so many smart people coming up with innovative, educational tips, tricks, and tools, that it doesn’t make sense (to me) to try and reinvent the wheel.

I’m always trying to improve my teaching and my courses, and I’m incredibly thankful that my students seem to notice that 🙂
