Hanna wins Victorine van Schaick Award

Hanna Jochmann-Mannak (former CTIT-EEMCS/HMI), who graduated in January 2014, recently has received the Victorine van Schaick Award 2014 for her PhD thesis Websites for children: Search strategies and interface design. Currently, she works as child-computer interaction expert at WizeNoze B.V. In her thesis, she concluded that children hardly prefer game elements at websites.

 

Annually, the Victorine van Schaick Fund and the KNVI (Koninklijke Nederlandse Vereniging van Informatieprofessionals / Royal Dutch Association of Information Professionals) award this price to research who contributed to the area of libraries and professional documentation in the broadest sense of the word. The award of 2000 euro and the 'Victorine van Schaickpenning', is intended to stimulate publications and innovation.
