Hoe zorgen docenten dat hét kwartje valt bij hun studenten? Vaak door het gebruik van beeldspraak. Hoe ze dat precies doen, laat wetenschapsjournalist en illustrator Enith Vlooswijk zien in de rubriek 'Les in verbeelding'. In deze aflevering: Jutta Arens, hoogleraar Engineering Organ Support Technologies bij de faculteit ET.
How do teachers ensure that the penny drops for their students? Often through the use of imagery. In the series 'Lessons in imagination', science journalist and illustrator Enith Vlooswijk shows exactly how they do that. In this episode: Jutta Arens, professor of Engineering Organ Support Technologies at the ET faculty.
UT scientists Jutta Arens and Dimitrios Stamatialis are developing an artificial placenta, a device that could save lives of hundreds of thousands babies. The technology combines lung and kidney support for ill newborns and is much less invasive than current methods. ‘Our approach will result in better care for the baby and more involvement of the family. The impact is not only scientific, but also social.’
