Nelly Litvak is the winner of the Educational award and can therefore call herself UT Teacher of the year 2022. Thursday afternoon, in the finals in Waaier 3, she beat her colleague lecturers Farid Vahdatikhaki, Ipek Seyran Topan and Wallace Corbo Ugulino.
Each of the four of them gave a guest lecture in the half-filled lecture hall Waaier 3. Litvak, professor of algorithmic complex networks, got those present to think about the term ‘distance’. In her lecture, named From A to B and Beyond, she sought interaction with the public through a short quiz. She showed, with the assistance of a picture of Manhattan – a borough of New York – how to calculate distance in a certain way: the Manhattan metric.
The patience of the lecturers and the crowd was put to quite the test after the lectures. It took the jury more than an hour to determine a winner. After that succeeded, Litvak was presented with a flower bouquet from jury chairwoman Anne Leferink, last year’s winner. The jury described Litvak as ‘patient and respectful’. She will also receive a cash prize of 2,500 euros and a certificate.
