Prof. Dr. Daniel Grieser received the ars legendi prize for excellent academic education

Stifterverband für die deutsche Wissenschaft, Berlin.

Prof. Daniel Grieser, who is an associated member of the RTG Models of Gravity, was honored for the successful implementation of the highly innovative didactics and the sophisticated scientific background of the module "Mathematisches Problemlösen und Beweisen" (mathematical solutions and proofs), which is a forwarding component in the early semesters of the bachelor studies of math at the Carl-von-Ossietzky University Oldenburg. 
The ars legendi faculty prize for math and science was awarded for the first time this year and it honours professors for their extraordinary dedication and high professionality. It is proclaimed in the four categories math, biology, chemistry and physics.
