Dr Mieke Mulder was named UvA Lecturer of the Year 2013 during the University's Dies Natalis celebrations on 8 January 2014.
Mulder, a lecturer in Clinical Pharmacology at the Faculty of Medicine, was one of six nominees chosen from each of the UvA’s faculties, all of whom received a medal and a pen engraved with their respective names.
After showing a short introductory video of each nominee, the jury – comprised of only students – announced Mulder as the winner of the 2013 Lecturer of the Year award. Mulder was commended for her ability to convey ‘dry’ subject matter in a clear and structured manner. Receiving the award, Mulder thanked all the students for inspiring her to improve her teaching, as well as her colleagues and father, who as a lecturer himself was the perfect role model.
