Nomination text for Richard Johansson: 

'Richard Johansson is a fantastic lecturer, who truly wants to see his students learn and grow. He consistently goes above and beyond to ensure that the quality of the education – as well as the experience for his students – is top notch. He has a remarkable ability to break down complex concepts and he makes a lot of effort to ensure that each student has the resources necessary to learn what he is trying to mediate. Richard is conveying the theory into practice, also providing opportunities for industry professionals to give insights to the students.

Richard really goes the extra mile in order to make it easier for us. He is always well prepared and has always an ear for his students, willing to lend a helping hand – both outside and inside the course.'
