Pearson's Managing Director of Arts, Science, Business and Engineering, Higher Education, Paul Corey, said, "We congratulate Susan H Rodger for her remarkable contributions to computer science education. Pearson is committed to helping institutions and educators improve learner outcomes and achieve measurable results that promote long-term success in this vitally important STEM field."
"While all topics proved to be of interest, the software engineering students' use and explanations of software-design patterns gathered the most attention from the other students, who quickly noticed that the SE students thought differently about software-systems development. Specific patterns became part of and often guided team dialogues; the CS and IT students were enthusiastic about the role and value of formal abstractions in software design. The supervising Excellus software architects had similar reactions to design patterns, and copies of the classic book, Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software , started to appear on their desks, and thereafter, on the desks of many Excellus software developers."
