Teaching

 

Ongoing: BA/MA Thesis Supervision (students: click for more information)

I won the Leiden Teaching Prize 2016: ” ‘a lecturer who knows her subject through and through, who is enormously committed to improving her teaching and inspiring her students.’ According to her students, Beerden effortlessly integrates research and theory in her teaching in a way that is understandable and refreshing. They describe her as very popular and a good motivator, and also praise her enthusiasm for her specialist fields.”
