Computer Science wins major international award

John Hosking, The Dean of Science at The University of Auckland, writes that: "Peerwise, developed by Computer Science’s Paul Denny, has won the QS Reimagine Education 2018/19 Award, which includes a $US 25,000 prize. Peerwise was the overall winner and won the ICT Tools for Teaching and Learning category in a competition that attracted 1,184 teams to submit portfolios of their work each of which was judged according to four criteria: Pedagogical approach, Engagement and reach, Measurable impact, and Scalability.

This is very well deserved recognition for Paul and the Peerwise team, who have clearly demonstrated that the Peerwise approach enhances learning outcomes for students.

Peerwise is in use in 80 countries by more than 0.5M students."
