Seminars were presented at the University of Gävle with Douglas MacCutcheon (Department of Environmental Psychology, Högskolan i Gävle, Sweden). The group also presented to the Linnaeus Centre HEAD Graduate School, Linköping University. HEAD is a cognitive hearing science research group based at the Swedish Centre for Disability Research, run by Jerker Rönnberg (editor of Scandinavian Journal of Psychology). The seminars formed part of the STINT initiation grant supporting collaboration between the universities of Pretoria and Gävle, Sweden. The seminars were well received by the attendees and visiting lecturers.
