FeedbackFruits & Erasmus University of Rotterdam Win Best Paper Award at the EUNIS Congress 2022

FeedbackFruits' co-written article with Erasmus University Rotterdam selected for Best Paper Award at EUNIS Congress 2022

FeedbackFruits' paper "Automated Feedback: an AI-powered tool to scale micro-level feedback for better academic writing" has been selected from a plethora of submissions for Best Paper Award at the EUNIS Congress 2022, one of the most prominent European platforms for sharing knowledge on digital transformation in higher education. Co-written by Wilco te Winkel, Information Manager at Erasmus University Rotterdam, and Ziwei Huang, Associate Product Manager at FeedbackFruits, the paper explains the Automated Feedback tool and its co-creation process.

The idea for Automated Feedback was sparked in 2018, when Wilco expressed the need for AI in teaching and learning to the FeedbackFruits team. This sparked the "Edtech DoTank" collaboration between Erasmus University Rotterdam, Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, and FeedbackFruits to develop the tool. The tool harnesses artificial intelligence to increase the quality of students' written work, as well as stimulate their autonomy and self-motivation.

Wilco te Winkel emphasized the importance of the EUNIS Award: "This award is a great recognition of the great amount of teamwork put into the development of this tool. Automated Feedback is a critical first step in providing students timely, personalized feedback on academic writing at scale. We intend to keep on developing this tool to provide even more meaningful feedback to students all over the world."

Ziwei Huang attributes this achievement to the company's commitment to centering educators in developing pedagogical technology. "We have involved educators at every step of the way in the development of Automated Feedback. It's their passion for improving their students' learning and keen eyes for improvement that made Automated Feedback such a fast-growing and well-loved product." 

This achievement has validated FeedbackFruits' mission of transforming higher education in collaboration with educators via accessible technology. FeedbackFruits, along with Erasmus University Rotterdam, EUNIS, and many other institutions have achieved this under guidance of the 1EdTech consortium's open standards for seamless integration with technological platforms and tools.
