Laudatio for Mrs. Imke Schwerin
Ms. Imke Schwerin receives the Weierstrass Award 2021 for the first-class supervision of the exercises on "Didactics of Arithmetic in Early Learning and Teaching". In particular, in the student surveys on motivation, interest in the learning success of the students and comprehensible communication of the content, Ms. Schwerin received excellent ratings from the students. Let me summarize a few comments:
"Super motivating exercise instructor who is a joy to participate with",
"Imke is very dedicated and makes every effort to ensure that all content is understood",
and maybe the most important: "You can really learn something"!
An important criterion in this year's selection was aspects of online teaching, which of course presented an additional challenge to all instructors. Ms. Schwerin passed this challenge with flying colors, as summed up rather aptly by a student comment, "The exercise is a good example of how online teaching can work effectively. It is hard to do it better".
Congratulations to Ms. Imke Schwerin on receiving the 2021 Weierstrass Award for Excellence in Teaching in the category of Exercise Group Leaders.
