During the month of October, the members of Medicinska Föreningen had the oppertunity to nominate teachers to the award, followed by a voting among the members. The Board has, based on the results of the voting, decided to honor Anna Wiik with the award of Mäster – In memory of Dan Grandér for 2022, based on the following motivation:
“We would like to nominate Anna Wiik for her great contributions on the nurses program. She is responsible for the course Anatomy & Physiology (13,5 HP) which is one of the first courses the nursing students take. Anna Wiik has shaped a pedagogical, information filled and challenging course. The course is a knowledge heavy course which many students are worried about before starting the program, but Anna Wiik breaks it down and makes it managabe for students who have read it. For example through fun lectures and clear schedules. During the pandemic the courses on the programe has not been working as well as before, but Anatomy & Physiology has held a high standard. This as a result of involving the students on zoom and by making it continuously interesting during difficult conditions. Anna Wiik has made the course structured and well planned which has set the bar high for the courses that follows. We the students has felt seen and heard from Anna, as she has been the teacher whom together with us students has worked to going back to campus based education after the pandemic. This at the same time as she every single semester volunteers at the nurses introduction kollo to inform about, and make the students worry less about the difficulty of the course. Her point on the program is for the best part of the day for the participants. She is a teacher who publishes research and always stays updated on what is evidence based. Her will to make sure that all of the students get a knowledge base which is as broad and relevant as possible makes us nominate her for Mäster in memory of Dan Grandér.”
Congratulations Anna, and thank you for your work for the students of Karolinska Institutet!
