Don Peurach is finalist for edX Prize for Exceptional Contributions in Online Teaching and Learning

November 06, 2020

Professor Don Peurach is among the 10 finalists selected for the fifth annual edX Prize for Exceptional Contributions in Online Teaching and Learning. The edX Prize celebrates the contributions and innovations of teachers in the edX community, and amplifies the powerful role that online education at scale plays in the transformation of education today.   


Peurach developed the Leading Educational Innovation and Improvement MicroMasters Program. The MicroMasters allows learners to take five courses focused on educational innovation and improvement, with a specific focus on the principles and application of Improvement Science. These courses can be used by practicing teachers, leaders, and reformers to advance their current knowledge and earn a certificate. 

In the past year, learners from the U.S., Turkey, Brazil, Taiwan, Singapore, China, Saudi Arabia, Rwanda, Lebanon, India, Australia, and the United Arab Emirates have completed the MicroMasters. 

This year’s edX Prize for Exceptional Contributions in Online Teaching and Learning finalists represent a diverse range of disciplines—economics and business, to environmental studies and architecture, to engineering and education. They also represent learning experiences from single courses to MicroMasters programs and Professional Certificate programs all the way up to fully online Master’s degrees. These finalists truly highlight the high-quality education available to learners from our partners on edX.
