This year – for his teaching in Applied Statistics – the award went to Sergey Kucheryavskiy. Sergey is a popular teacher not just on the Aalborg University Esbjerg campus but on the Aalborg campus too where he also teaches. This is then also the third time in fewer years that he has been awarded the title. This year, Sergey's students in Aalborg nominated him for the award.
The students highlighted that Sergey has created a new learning platform that is both pedagogic and academic. He has spent many hours recording videos where he goes through every part of the syllabus, always accompanied by useful and understandable examples. He has also designed quizzes for all the subtopics and a discussion forum where students can ask questions of each other and of him. The learning platform motivates students to learn, and helps them better understand the subject matter of Applied Statistics.
"I’m very happy once again to be selected as Teacher of the Year" says Sergey, and adds: "It shows that my students are positive about my new learning method, and that it helps them. I’m really pleased about that.”
The award was presented by Erik G. Søgaard, Section for Chemical Engineering, AAU Esbjerg.
