Teacher award

Mathematics teacher Theo Hendriks has won the 2006 Teacher of the Year Award. In a preliminary round, students could vote for their favourite teacher. Five were then nominated from those who received the most votes. A jury consisting of seven students chose Hendriks, who was also short-listed last year, as teacher of the year. Hendriks has worked at the university for almost thirty years and currently gives the courses Decision Science 1 and 2. The prize includes 2500 euros, to be spent on innovations in education. / JH
