Opiskelijakunta SAVOTTA


Teacher of the Year

Jouni Silfver was chosen as the Teacher of the Year in 2020

Student Union of Savonia UAS had a honor to name Savonia UAS’s teacher Jouni Silfver as Teacher of the Year in 2020. Due to this exceptional situation, we couldn’t organize the annual event at the Kuopio’s town square. Anyhow, the Teacher of the Year will be rewarded later this year.

This year chosen Teacher of the Year is having a lot of experience from his field. Students say that he has kept his teaching very clear and professional, without forgetting the casual touch in lessons. He has also held online courses and zoom-lessons very well and clear.

The Teacher of the Year got a diploma and “the challenge cup”. Nomination isn’t supposed to put teachers in “a ranking list”. The meaning of the nomination is to give praise and acknowledgement of great teaching and inspiring expertise.
