The Good Teacher - Magister Bonus prize 2013 to Hanna Kuusi


The Good Teacher - Magister Bonus prize 2013 was awarded to Social Science History Lecturer and    Adjunct Professor in Economic and Social History Hanna Kuusi. The awarding of Kuusi was based on the fact that she is genuinely interested not only in her own field, but also in teaching. As a teacher, Ms Kuusi uses a variety of pedagogical approaches and emphasises student-centered deep learning. In her teaching, she links her own field to a wider social framework and takes into account the students' different career plans. The students who nominated Ms Kuusi, praised her as an encouraging, warm and communicative teacher. According to students, Ms Kuusi aims at getting to know her students also outside the lecture hall and is present in the events of subject organisations, among other things. She also constantly develops her courses based on the feedback received from students.
