Karen Brounéus winner of the Free Distinguished Teaching Award


Congratulations to our Senior Lecturer Karen Brounéus on winning the Free Distinguished Teaching Award on the theme “Creative teaching”. We're incredibly proud of her achievement. Her innovative and creative teaching at our Department is truly inspiring.

There was a beautiful moment when Deputy Vice-Chancellor Coco Norén surprised Karen Brounéus with the news on Tuesday, May 23rd.

The recipients of the Distinguished Teaching Awards are selected from nominations made by students and colleagues. The selection is made by the Vice-Chancellor after proposals from a preparatory committee.

The motivation for the price: 

Brounéus connects clinical psychology and mindfulness with peace and conflict research – inner peace with external peace – in a unique manner. She tackles complicated issues such as trauma and reconciliation with great expertise and empathic dedication. Karin is passionate about students’ well-being and teaches how mindfulness-based stress management can prepare them for tackling challenges in their lives and professions. Students testify to an outstanding ability to create an atmosphere in the classroom in which everyone feels involved and heard.
