Smart meets silly in The Peer Revue, where cutting-edge research fuels improv comedy.

Each month a different superstar researcher tells stories from their research, which will inspire a cast of talented improvisers to create brand new, unscripted comedy.

The Peer Revue is a hilarious celebration of science, philosophy, history, art, and all things academic. You’ll laugh, and you also might learn.

Over the past few weeks, cheating scandals have rocked the worlds of chess, video games, elevator maintenance, and Irish dancing. Even at universities, which try hard to stop cheating, around 10% of students admit to getting someone else to do their work for them. How can we stop cheating? Our guest for December, Professor Phillip Dawson is here to help. Phill hacks into online exams, pays people to write assignments, and hangs out in the dodgy parts of the Internet, all to stay one step ahead. His work has been featured by international news media (Vice, BBC, Financial Times), cited in federal parliament, and loathed by professional cheaters. Phill is Professor and Associate Director of the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE) at Deakin University.
