Within these various contexts Boris has demonstrated that he is an exceptional communicator and inspiring teacher. He is a highly dedicated artist who knows how to motivate his students to strive for innovation and excellence. Boris possesses a talent for making complex subjects understandable. As a colleague he is exceptional and always looks for ways to promote and extend the aims of the Centre. He acts with the highest professionalism and is a most gracious, considerate and approachable person, who loves to share his extensive knowledge with others, his students in particular. I have no hesitancy in recommending Boris to any teaching position in Photography, Conceptual, New Media or Crossmedia Art.

In the time that we’ve worked with Boris he has demonstrated an extensive and extraordinary array of professional qualities. He is a highly motivated and talented artist who displays an innovative, dedicated and responsive approach to teaching and learning and brings a strength, energy and dynamic approach to the College. We highly recommend Boris to the teaching position you offer.

Boris presented a most successful education program and the feedback from students has been wonderful. The program was repeated due to demand from students.(…) Boris was a delight to work with and when he returns to Australia we will have no hesitation in developing new opportunities for him to teach at CCP.
Naomi Cass, Director | Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne
He is an inspiring and dedicated lecturer and artist, with an innate ability to facilitate excellence, motivation and risk-taking in his students. (…) He is equally admired and respected amongst colleagues and students for his innovative, generous and professional approach. I can highly recommend Boris for any professorship position in photography or photomedia.
Christopher Koller, Professor of Photography | Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne University
He introduced new ways of leading group discussions which has been much appreciated. Upon my return the entire class had evolved dynamically, positively and cohesively. Through his teaching in Mainz, Boris Eldagsen has demonstrated to me that he is an exceptional communicator and teacher. He shows outstanding responsibility and professionalism.
Dr. Vladimir Spacek, Professor of Photography | Akademie für Bildende Künste, Mainz
Die Vorlesung, die didaktisch hervorragend aufgebaut war und sehr professionell durchgeführt wurde, wurde von unseren Studierenden durchgängig mit Bestnoten bewertet.(…) Aufgrund der hervorragenden Zusammenarbeit und der Rückmeldungen unserer Studierenden bin ich der festen Überzeugung, dass die von Herrn Eldagsen und Frau Taeubner angebotene Vorlesung für jeden Studiengang mit Bezug zur Kreativwirtschaft eine große Bereicherung des Lehrangebots ist.
Dr. Matthias Schulten, Professor für Digitale Medien | Hochschule Furtwangen
Without the guidance and inspiration from you this year, we would have had no clue of which way to go. We began looking within ourselves, rather than outside ourselves, and we started to shine through and gain entrance into something we never knew existed.

I don’t know how to thank you enough for all of your help this year. Thank you for the motivation, inspiration and for being the first teacher at PSC to encourage me to explore instead of restricting me :). Thank you.
Kim Liddle | PSC Melbourne
Thank you so much, for your kind words of wisdom. I appreciate everything you taught us, to open our minds to the endless possibilities and showing us we just can’t settle for mediocre.
Alyce Langier | PSC Melbourne
Thanks a lot for the input and advice. Without it I would have been lost.
Tristan Davies | PSC Melbourne
I wanted to thank you for the course you put together for us. I felt privileged to be taught by someone who not only understood what they were talking about, but also someone who actually really enjoyed and cared about what they were teaching. This made the class very enjoyable and made me want to learn more. So thank you for all your hard work.
