Award Ceremony ESE Awards

During the Erasmus School of Economics Christmas drinks on Tuesday, December 13, the ESE award ceremony took place. Among others, awards were presented to our Top Educators, who were valued for their inspiring teaching methods or their innovative way of incorporating ICT in their courses.

Paul Bouman and Gert-Jan van den Burg received an award for their use of the new tool Autolab in the course Programming. This tool automatically gives feedback on the student’s work. Hence, students immediately know how well they did in the assignment and don’t have to wait until the teacher has finished grading. Anne Gielen was awarded for her revisions of the course History of Economic Thought and the positive student evaluations she received. Teresa Bago d’Uva was praised for her work on the courses Quantitative Methods for Applied Economics and Methods & Techniques and for her positive student evaluations. Han Smit won his award for his enthusiastic and motivating way of teaching and his use of innovatory didactic methods.

In addition to the Educator Awards, the other presented awards were the Top Researcher Awards, the Societal Impact Award, the Support Award, and the Dean’s Award. Sjoerd van Bekkum, Stefan Obernberger, Vijay Hariharan, Michel van der Wel, Dana Sisak, and Jolanda Hessels won a Top Researcher Award. Robert Dur received the Societal Impact Award for his cooperation with amongst others the municipality of Rotterdam and the Centraal Planbureau (CPB). Senior Policy Officer Wietske Rowaan won the Support Award and this year’s Dean’s award was presented to the board of FAECTOR.
