You can submit your proposals about TREY’s Good Teacher Award recipients until June 2.

The Student Union of Tampere University appreciates the quality of teaching, the willingness of teachers to improve their courses and being student friendly. TREY’s goal is to reward faculty members widely in the community. As such the student union honours exceptional members of the teaching faculty with the Good Teacher Award. The award is organized with The University of Tampere Foundation and The Industrial Research Fund at Tampere University of Technology. This yearly award will be gifted to three members of the teaching facility.

The executive board of TREY has appointed a committee to coordinate this award. The committee has opened a form that can be used to submit your proposal of this year’s winner. The form is open from May 12 to June 2. You can submit your proposal via TREY’s Good Teacher Award JotForm. The suggestions should be clear and justified well. In addition, we hope that all the questions asked in the form are filled. In addition to the responses, you can leave an open letter about the recipient, if you so please.
