The event came out of an idea of Teacher of the Year Roel Dijksma’s. The hydrogeology teacher is using his prize money for two evening lectures on 28 and 29 September in Orion. The setup is similar to that of the well-known TED talks. WUR has taken the idea on board and will continue the series, starting with previous Teachers of the Year but welcoming other storytellers too, says Susanne Laven of Publicity and Recruitment.
