Digital Campus Tour San Francisco – Day 4

Nicole Kasielke, head of communication channels at the ETH Zurich, reports from the digital campus tour in San Francisco.

Our last day of the study tour started with another trip to Berkeley where we attended a podcast workshop. The program said: podcasts are the new “gold” in digital communications. Our instructor Laura Klivans used a different expression. She gave us a historical wrap-up on radio shows and said that audio actually is the “cockroach” of communications.

Digital Campus Tour San Francisco – Day 1

Anne Dörig, Communication Specialist at the HES-SO reports from the digital campus tour in San Francisco.

On the first day of our Digital Campus Study tour we discovered the importance of storytelling. A good story will hook the reader and make him curious to know the end. It’s pretty obvious to say that but it’s definitely difficult when it comes to complicated subject such as science. To illustrate and show you this point, I’ll tell you the story of this first day :).

Detroit goes Zurich West

Fiona Gisler und Daniela Wirz, Mitarbeiterinnen der ZHAW Soziale Arbeit, berichten vom Besuch der WSU School of Social Work aus Detroit.

Was mit einem Sabbatical in Zürich und einem Besuch in Detroit begann, wurde vergangene Woche mit einem Gegenbesuch einer Delegation der Wayne State University School of Social Work aus Detroit an der ZHAW Soziale Arbeit weitergeführt. Der viertägige Austausch war intensiv und hat das gegenseitige Interesse an einer Zusammenarbeit bestärkt.

Frühförderung in Namibia

Dominique Melissa Rieser berichtet von ihrem Auslandpraktikum in Windhoek, Namibia.

Kindergärten in Namibia sind nicht staatlich, sondern privat organisiert und somit können sich nur die wohlhabenderen Familien einen Kindergartenplatz leisten. Zudem ist die Stellung von Kindern oder Menschen mit besonderen Bedürfnissen hier in Namibia schlecht.

Dayton day 9 – Alzheimer and last presentation

La’Cole, Sandra and Werner report from the study week in Dayton, Ohio.

This morning Jane and Beth came to class to talk about senior adults and community services for them. One of them works for the Greene County Council on Aging. The other one works for the alzheimer’s association. The Greene County Council on Aging does several things for seniors over sixty years old. I had the impression their service is similar to what we call the SPITEX.

Dayton day 8 – Snazzy Wednesday!

Adam, Karin and Kilian report from the study week in Dayton, Ohio.

Today’s special topic was immigration. We were able to talk about how the people of Switzerland and the U.S view the idea of Immigrants and of Refugees. After an equally interesting and entertaining presentation, the bunch of Swiss and US students split up in two groups for the afternoon activity. One group went to the Childcare Centre of Montgomery County. The other 10 students were honoured by having the possibility to go to court and meet a judge and a prosecutor at the juvenile court and detention centre of Greene County.
