Linda van der Nat,Marijn Flipse

In the run-up to the award ceremony of the education prize, five laureates of the Teacher of the Year Award tell about their life as lecturers. Today: that one student you will never forget.

In this second video, Dolf Weijers (Biochemistry), Jessica Duncan (Rural Sociology), Roel Dijksma (Hydrology and Quantitative Water Management), Gert Peek (Soil Geography and Landscape) and Jan den Ouden (Forest Ecology and Forest Management) tell about the students they will always remember. For Jan den Ouden, it was the student who was so smart, no one wanted to work with him, because he always knew everything better. Gert Peek speaks of the respect he has for students who work really hard to pass their exams.

Curious to know whether you are that one student these top lecturers will never forget? Then watch the video.
