On January 11, 2013, Omid Noroozi successfully defended his dissertation ‘Fostering Argumentation-Based Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning in Higher Education’. The promotion committee decided to grant Omid the distinction ‘Cum Laude’, which is very special, because only 3% of all PhD candidates of Wageningen University get this disctinction. Congratulations Omid.
