Excellence in Teaching
Claus Brabrand has shown strong dedication to student learning and to excellence in teaching for more than a decade at the IT University [of Copenhagen]. He consistently gets stellar student evaluations and holds the ITU record for student satisfation in a large course; Introductory Programming, with 99 responses.*
Claus is an expert in University didactics; frequently teaching university teachers at ITU and at other universities. He is famous for creating and directing a film that clearly explains [John] Biggs' SOLO Taxonomy [and Constructive Alignment] in just 19 minutes.
Besides his regular university teaching, he has designed the content and structure of the IT-Camp for women, the Coding Cafe for women, and BootIT onboard course for all, and other extra-curricular courses. He clearly deserves our recognition of his excellent and sustained contribution to the university.
