Vanessa Swenson has been accepted as a 2018-2019 Fellow in the Future Faculty Fellows Program. Sponsored jointly by the UGA Graduate School and the Center for Teaching and Learning, 3FP is a yearlong professional development program that brings together 15 innovative and dedicated teaching assistants from across campus to talk about, reflect upon, and improve their teaching, while preparing them for the academic job market and the rigors of their first faculty positions.
Dr. Bryan Gick visited UGA to give a lecture on concatenation and coarticulation in embodied speech. Dr. Gick's research focuses on understanding the physical mechanisms of speech production and their interations with perception, phonology, and phonetics in normal, disordered, and children's speech across languages. His talk was co-funded by Linguistics and AI.
