Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
The goals of the course are:
- to obtain an overall understanding of communication by sound and voice,
- to obtain deeper knowledge on the human auditory system and auditory perception, and
- to enable access to read scientific literature of the topic and to apply the knowledge in practice.
