Alex Peng presents two research projects in the Festival of the Mind



On Saturday 22nd Sep, Alex Peng is presenting two new projects to public visitors in the Festival of the Mind, which will be held in the Sheffield Spiegeltent.  These two interdisciplinary projects (i.e. one focuses on developing and evaluating an e-learning system to train teachers and let them provide better support to disable young people, and the other aims to develop a mobile app to support the unmet needs of cancer survivors) are the results of Alex’s participation in the Sheffield Crucible programme (http://www.shef.ac.uk/faculty/science/training-and-development/sheffield-crucible), and involve other colleagues from the Department of Human Communication Sciences, Academic Unit of Clinical Oncology, Department of Sociological Studies, and School of English.
