The Rapport’s editor, Waldimar Pelser, explained that Rapport and the Media24 group are involved in education in many different ways. They support scholarships for students and awards for top lecturers. The competition asks students to vote for their most inspiring lecturer: the good teacher explains, the superior teacher demonstrates and the great teacher inspires!

Alicia teaches first-year Economics in both semesters and has become a bit of a legend, winning the prize for a third time this year. Her dedication to her teaching and care for her students in unmatched.

This year, she is also part of the innovators@work teaching project on campus, while finishing up her PhD on the economic literacy of first-year students. You can check out her Flipping Economics blog.
