Virtual reality and sonic interactions for good (Friday, 28 May 2021, 12:00 – 13:00)

In this meeting, Stefania Serafin (Professor at Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology at Aalborg University, Copenhagen) will present different applications of VR developed at the Multisensory Experience lab at Aalborg University. Specifically, she will show examples of how VR can help children with anxiety to sing in front of a virtual choir or play a virtual musical instrument.


Cognition in the ‘wild’: s(t)imulating an adventure-mindset (Friday, 11 June 2021, 12:00 – 13:00)

This talk will spotlight the work of Dave Gallagher (Cognitive Scientist and Chartered Psychologist) on adventure training organisations including the charity MAST which takes youngsters out to sea on tall ships. Within this programme he aims to explore how VR can help train participants in the challenge and skills of sailing, as well as other applications of the technology to educate about the maritime environment and maritime heritage.
