MOBIS wins competition for best teaching project
We are proud to announce that our lighthouse teaching course for mobile app development M-Lab (here in German) won this year’s competition for the best university teaching in Hamburg within the funding program “Unseren Hochschulen 2015”. With this program, the Claussen-Simon Foundation and the Hamburg Higher Education Authority aim at promoting excellent professors and innovative teaching activities as well as increasing the collaboration between students and professors. We have been selected among the top 3 out of 300 student recommendations for professors and their teaching events.
The award ceremony ‘Ausgezeichnet!’ (eng. outstanding) took place on the 7th December 2015, where the award winners were honored and the prize money for each of the 3 winning project was announced. Our project received the highest funding (69.000 EUR). Members of MOBIS and selected students from current and past M-Lab were invited to this special dinner event.
The funding will be use for hiring more teaching assistants, improve the quality of the tutorials and seminars collocated with the M-Lab projects (e.g. with podcasts) and to develop a sustainability concept for the teaching program.
