Listen to the Campus Fryslân podcast series called Global Cast. Our faculty has a great diversity of people, subjects and knowledge, waiting to be shared with the rest of the world, by means of interesting conversations and interviews. Worth listening!
In this episode of GlobalCast, we will have a quick dive into the booming business of Voice Technology with two experts: Matt Coler and Esther Klabbers. Matt Coler is Associate Professor and Director of the Voice Technology Master of Science Programme at Campus Fryslân and Esther Klabbers is a speech scientist at ReadSpeaker (based in Driebergen-Rijsenburg), a leading business in Voice Technology.
For their last assignment of the year, the first year students of the class Global Health (UCF) produced podcasts in small project groups. The topics were all related to COVID-19. The research, interviews, editing and presentation was done by the students. This resulted in beautiful productions and episodes worth listening to: how does COVID-19 affect our day-to-day life across the globe, across the population groups, and across the social strata?
- Mental health in times of quarantaine
- Preganancy during COVID-19
- Cancer patient during COVID-19
- Flying doctors in times of corona crisis
- Herd immunity
After several months of quarantine and social distancing, people not only have questions about their own health, their work and school, but more and more they want to know if they can still travel around, take an airplane or go to their favorite restaurant. The use of public space has changed so much within these new COVID-19 rules, so, what to expect? Elena Cavagnaro and Lucia Tomassini will give us a forecast.
How does the pandemic help us teach our students to change the world? And how does COVID-19 transform the means and contents of education? In this first episode of Global Cast we talked about working and teaching online.
Anne Beaulieu and Sepideh Yousefzadeh, lecturers of Campus Fryslân, are the first guests of Global Cast, both enthusiastic and dedicated educators willing to tell their story and experiences.
