Lectures in the open

Today the weather was beautiful so we decided to do our seminar on game theory outside. We carried a whiteboard and tripod to the grass just outside the university building, and Jan Feitsma gave a talk on duopoly. It's great to attend a lecture in the open! Passants were also smiling a lot at us... :)

Teacher of the year!

Today was a great day, because I won the 'Teacher of the Year (for exercise sessions)' award! Thanks a lot, all my students from Linear Algebra! I already knew for some time I was nominated, and today at the 'award show' I heard I won. All the nominees were supposed to give a five or ten minute talk. I didn't know what to say, so instead I sang a song together with Johan: 'Het Studentenassistentenlied'.

I'm an editor for the Periodiek, the little magazine of our student association the FMF. This weekend we had 'Perioweekend', which means the weekend we put all the articles into the layout. Abel and I just finished the editorial proces. I'm not allowed to say too much about it yet, but I want to share the following picture with you:

Book: De Eeuw van mijn Vader

The other day I finished reading 'De Eeuw van mijn Vader', written by Geert Mak. It's about the history of The Netherlands in the previous century. Just like the 'In Europa' it is written in a clever way and I learned a lot from it.

I recommend anyone who is interested in Dutch history to read this nice book.
