Who can nominate?
Nomination is open to managers and colleagues of team members. Also, programme committees can nominate.
Who can be nominated?
Examples of teams that can be nominated for the Casimir Prize by managers or colleagues are:
- Existing teaching teams
For example, consisting of teachers and a course coordinator.
- Ad hoc teams
Put together by an institute/the FSW Faculty Board, to help brainstorm about (realising) the educational vision
- (From an educational issue) Organically created teams
For example, lecturers, support staff and social partners.
Projects with social partners (however, the social partners themselves are not nominated). Condition is that the special achievements of the team have not previously been rewarded with the Casimir Prize or the NHO, but may explicitly have received previous funding as part of a living lab for educational innovation (e.g. Grassroots or Grass shoots).
Existing bodies (e.g. LTA and YAL) are excluded from nomination.
What are the key evaluation criteria?
Working method, cooperation and content of the educational initiative (weighting 50%)
The teaching team has devised and/or realised an educational innovation that can also take other educational initiatives forward. Collaboration within and outside FSW is valued.
Impact within the educational community (weighting 30%)
The education team has had an impact on students, and/or lecturers, and/or course(s), and/or programme level, and/or institute level, and/or the faculty with the education initiative (and working method). If the impact has not yet been realised, it has been convincingly argued why it can reasonably be expected when implementing the education initiative.
Evidence-informed working methodology (weighting 20%)
The education team has worked on the education initiative in a systematic way, for example through evidence-informed working methodology or periodic reflection on project outcomes. This is demonstrated, for example, by substantiation using scientific literature, explicit attention to (future) evaluation and/or (future) research.
