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.

Dr. Elizabeth Presa, Head and Academic Coordinator

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.

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.

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.

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.
