College of Science Dean’s Commendation for Excellence in Education (Team)
The team has designed the course to be engaging and interesting to all students. Giel is an excellent communicator, passionate about student engagement, fostering curiosity, develops engaging content for learning material, consistently asks for and incorporates feedback. The whole team successfully adapted the practical classes to remote learning in a way which gives students an authentic research project. The practical component really enhances students research skills and interest and the on-going practical from week to week is much more interesting than usual weekly labs. Being given the opportunity to use high quality research equipment was also a great aspect of this course.
