During the Student Council new year's reception on Wednesday 13 January, Dr. van Lammeren received a replica of the sculpture 'The Teacher', the original of which graces the front of the building De Leeuwenborch. The award is financed annually by the Wageningen University Funds. All five nominees get 2500 euros to be spent on teaching.
Devoted and innovative
Besides his passion for the subject, interaction with students and broad array of teaching material, the jury also valued the way Van Lammeren urges students to think about issues. 'Students with queries are welcomed in his office at all times, but they hardly leave with direct answers. André motivates his students to ponder the issues which they have raised.'
Savelkoul
The limelight was also turned on Prof. Huub Savelkoul. He had been nominated four times for the title of best teacher and continued to score excellently in the selections. He was therefore bestowed the title 'Teacher hors classe' and received a replica of the Wageningen Tree.
