For all teachers, educational professionals, be inspired by the diversity of teaching careers with this book ‘Dedication to education - Ten portraits of inspired teachers in higher education‘.

These personal stories give you a glimpse into the dynamic and diversified motivations of ten educational professionals in higher education. Let these stories inspire you to think seriously about your own teaching. The shared stories provide you with practical suggestions to further enrich and reinforce your own teaching career. Most of all, that they inspire you to start sharing your own stories: with the ComeniusNetwerk, with students, with colleagues, or with managers. Exchanging such positive stories helps concretizing aspects of the recognition and rewards movement currently taking shape. We hope that this lead to more dedication to teaching.
