Joost Hoenderop, theme Renal disorders, is to receive the 2019 Radboud University Teaching Prize for senior lecturers. The prize is a reward for excellent teaching and consists of a certificate and a sum of €3000, two-thirds of which is to be spent on educational activities. The prizes was awarded on Monday 2 September when the 2019-2020 Radboud University Academic Year was opened.
Joost Hoenderop teaches students of all years of the medical school. He is a committed, approachable, motivating and inspiring lecturer who gives students confidence in their own abilities and takes time out to help them. He has played a key role in the education of many students. He provides ‘motivational teaching’, offering both thorough theoretical explanations and examples from practice in his lessons. He challenges students to think more and encourages them to ask questions and to look beyond the boundaries of their own discipline.
Joost Hoenderop played a major role in the curriculum review of the Bachelor’s programmes in Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. The fact that ‘team-based learning’ has been given a central place in the curriculum is in part thanks to his efforts. As coordinator of the ‘Context Science and Innovation’ pathway, he has been bringing together science, innovation and the underlying basic medical knowledge since the Bachelor's programme started. Joost Hoenderop links his innovative vision of teaching to educational practice and communicates and disseminates his ideas, for example during inspiring classes on ‘best practices’ for colleagues. The jury is impressed with the way Joost Hoenderop excels in several areas at once and so has nominated him for the University Teaching Prize for senior lecturers.
