Outreach and media coverage

Outreach

Dennis plays an active role in outreach activities from his research group.

He takes specific care to keep/get students from the various educational programs involved in research, by stimulating them to pursue their own ideas to the point of publishing the results in a peer reviewed paper (leading to more than 10 peer reviewed papers co-authored by students). He organises field trips for primary school children in the DesignLab of the University of Twente (several times a year), where children play with many novel technologies but at the same time contribute to interactive evaluations and the collection experimental data. Furthermore, he organizes "in the wild" and field tests with interactive technology for play and learning together with his PhD students. These tests take place at "semi-public" locations such as Hoogstraat Revalidatie (gait rehabilitation), Dichterbij (care institution for people with PIMD), various schools and daycare centers, and TETEM art gallery, plus simiar activities with BSc and MSc thesis students at, e.g., Concordia Gallery Enschede, Rijksmuseum Twenthe, and Music Therapy sessions at the ArtEZ School of Music.

Finally, he is also part of the “werkveldcommissie” (an advisory body) of the newly created Master Programme in Music Therapy at ArtEZ School of Music in Enschede.
