Juggling work and play

Bier-SevenSharp

Following the recent coverage in The New Zealand Herald, Engineering Science teaching fellow Peter Bier was featured on current affairs programme Seven Sharp last night.

The segment contained a look inside his lecture theatre, which involved Bier teaching through eye-catching methods such as unicycling, juggling, and more. The positive feedback from his students were certainly consistent with his aim to make learning more fun.

This story coincided with reports of the University of Auckland climbing ten spaces to rank at 82nd place in the latest QC World University rankings. Journalist Tim Wilson lightheartedly frames Bier as the university's 'secret weapon' to success.
