The teaching prize is awarded to teachers who have achieved the best results in their teaching evaluation in the respective academic year. This is measured by the highest student satisfaction. The following criteria are taken into account when selecting the winners of the teaching award: the overall grade as well as the number and type of courses offered and the number of participants are taken into account. Since all subjects of the faculty are evaluated on a regular basis, all teachers - irrespective of their status - have a chance of winning the prize. The award ceremony takes place on Faculty Day or within the framework of a faculty sitting.
