The course “Diving Deep – Conceptual and Empirical Perspectives on Social-Ecological Transformations” offered by RightSeeds team members Nina Gmeiner and Julia Tschersich was awarded the Teaching Prize (“Preis der Lehre”). The seminar gives students an insight into the scientific discourse on social-ecological transformation.
The Teaching Prize is awarded each academic year at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg for different categories. In principle, courses only come into the running if they are suggested by students. A jury consisting of university lecturers, students from all faculties and external members then decides on the award. A further prize category is the category “course evaluation”. There, the lecturers apply themselves with the results of their course evaluation. Julia Tschersich and Nina Gmeiner scored best in this category with their offered seminar. The award ceremony took place on November 29th of 2018 as a university public ceremony, the prize winners in each category received earmarked prize money.
