2019-12-06 | Invisible but indispensable - Dr. Jürgen Buder honoured as reviewer
One could also say that St. Nicholas brought something special to Dr. Jürgen Buder: The provisional head of the Knowledge Exchange Lab at the IWM has now received the "Best Reviewer Award" of the International Conference on Computers in Education (ICCE). The ICCE is organised by the Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education (APSCE), whose main objective is to promote the conduct and communication of scientific research related to all aspects of the use of computers in education.
"The job of a reviewer is immensely important, but usually receives little appreciation. You put a lot of effort into detailed feedback, but remain invisible in the background," explains Buder, who usually writes one to two-page reviews on scientific articles of the programme. For the first time, the ICCE is now paying tribute to reviewers who help the authors to improve their papers and inspire them to advance their research with particularly constructive comments. The award was presented at this year's conference, which takes place in Taiwan from 2 to 6 December. In the best reviewer manner, Jürgen Buder remained in the background and accepted the award in Tübingen due to time constraints.
