This week, on Thursday May 27th, we will be hosting our second GEMH Session! Our latest episode will feature none other than Erasmus University Rotterdam's own innovation expert Farshida Zafar!
The second installment of our GEMH session series features Farshida Zafar, a Senior Fellow at the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for Digital Governance and Director of ErasmusX, Erasmus University's innovation platform. In the past years she co-designed, developed and implemented both educational programs as well as new (mobile) applications and platforms for educational purposes. Currently leading the ErasmusX initiative at Erasmus University Rotterdam, Farshida's ambition is to ‘future proof’ education. Together with Hanneke Scholten and Nastasia Griffioen, Farshida talked about how to make innovations in education truly successful, and which practical sides to keep in mind when trying to make a change.
Joanneke was invited as a guest on the Play Well for Life Podcast hosted by Dr. Sarah Campbell where they discussed using Virtual Reality to improve mental health, merging art and science, and the importance of play.
