These are the excellent teachers in 2021 – who will be in 2022?

Every year, WU brings lecturers and teachers who have distinguished themselves with exceptional achievements before the curtain as part of the WU Awards. The special feature: WU students are exclusively responsible for the nominations in the category “Excellent Teaching”! This year, too, you can vote for what you consider to be the best, most committed and most creative teachers from now until December 20, 2021. But who were the excellent teachers of the past year?

The last two years were marked by the pandemic and posed great challenges for all WU faculty: Time and again, teaching formats and offerings had to be adapted to the new circumstances, designed and further developed. These WU lecturers nevertheless managed to defy all difficulties and deliver excellent teaching to their students:
