A winner of the award is announced every other year. 

Trine is an innovative teacher, who at an early stage started using student-centered and case-based teaching at NHH. She was also among the first to start using portfolios and digital teaching methods. This has triggered interest both at other departments and among teachers outside NHH.

The jury emphasizes that Trine is a pioneer, who has served as an inspirer for others around her. She generously shares her knowledge, and has had a significant impact on the teaching community at NHH. She is great in her interaction with students, who consistently comments on the high quality of Trine's courses.

Trine has also made important contributions to the community by serving on important committees, such as the working group that investigated the transition from the old four-year “siv-øk" to the bachelor-master program we have today, and later on the Program Committee for the Bachelor's program, PBU.
