Teaching Award

Teaching Award in the category student proposals

The Teaching Award in the category "Student Proposals" has been awarded at theDies Academicus 2019 to:

Prof. Dr. Berta Martín-López and Prof. Dr. Vicky Temperton are implementing the educational concept of Leuphana in an exemplary way with the four-semester English-language course "Ecological Restoration for Sustainability" in the Minor Nachhaltigkeitswissenschaften: Students with different backgrounds are working in a project- and research-oriented manner on a real renaturalisation project on a meadow orchard in Wendisch-Evern in cooperation with the Lüneburg association of meadow orchards.

Their course concept is outstandingly holistic and pedagogically-didactically thought through. The innovative, competence-oriented examination formats (Pecha Kucha presentations, research diaries, scientific posters, brochures, conference organisation and participation, blog) promote creativity and collaborative cooperation in interdisciplinary groups. Students are intensively trained and coached in teamwork and project management.

One student said: "It was a great experience to research, learn and make an important contribution to the development of the region at the same time, which also ties in with the highly topical climate debates. Thus we were able to experience directly that science is not only important for research and our graduation, but also contributes to shaping society".
