[Other] Congratulations to Frank A. Kraemer
Assoc. Prof. Frank A. Kraemer is one of the nine first "merited teachers" at NTNU.
Below is the committee's nomination text (in Norwegian):
“Kraemers pedagogiske virksomhet har en tydelig og dokumentert utvikling fra tradisjonell forelesning til teambasert læring (TBL) der etter hvert også det fysiske læringsmiljøet trekkes inn som en viktig faktor for å diskutere hva som danner det optimale grunnlag for studenters læring. Søkeren har en vitenskapelig tilnærming til undervisningsoppdraget. Han diskuterer Blooms reviderte taksonomi og hvordan denne tenkningen leder til en argumentasjon for arbeid i team fremfor individuelt arbeid. Hans utviklingsarbeid omfatter også alternative vurderingsmåter. Dette fremstår som godt fundert. Kraemer kan vise til utstrakt deling av sine erfaringer, blant annet på Læringsfestivalen og gjennom ulike andre former for formidling. Han har videre utviklet en opplæringsmodul/seminarserie om TBL for faglærere. Som pedagogisk leder har Kraemer i stor grad vært aktiv i sitt eget fagmiljø der han har fått andre med på å bruke TBL. Han har også hatt en viktig rolle i fakultetets FRIKT-prosjekt og i NTNUs arbeidsgruppe for innovative læringsarealer. Det foreligger en konkret plan for videre arbeid som merittert underviser.”
