Sudden hearing impairment is more quickly accepted than when it arrives gradually, as shown in a new thesis at Linköping University.
The world’s leading experts on cognitive hearing and communication are gathering for a conference in Linköping in mid-June. Their field of research is new, and very expansive.
Conditions for development and innovation in working life are the theme of a conference being held in Linköping on 11-14 June. Examples of subjects that will be discussed are employees who themselves develop ideas for improving their work, conditions for running businesses in eastern Africa, and the effects of large projects.
Learning has always been fundamental to Sven Andersson and Ingrid Andersson. Ten years have elapsed since the collaboration with the National University of Rwanda first began. It was about a postgraduate study programme in educational science that was not available in Rwanda. The mission was nine PhD students, and with Faustin Mutwarasibo’s dissertation on 14 May, that mission was accomplished.
“It has been an adventure, a challenge and incredibly exciting. A genuine collaborative learning experience,” says Ingrid Andersson.
