In the March episode, we will invite these interesting guests to the stage:
Prof. RNDr. Milan Hejny, CSc.
Milan Hejný is a leading Czech and Slovak mathematician, an expert in didactics in mathematics, and professor at the Faculty of Education at Charles University. He graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University and, for many years, as he states, devoted his life to "hard mathematics." However, dissatisfaction with his son's teaching led him to the decision to go experimentally teaching mathematics at a primary school in Bratislava.
Professor Hejný is not a supporter of classical teaching, and after the practical experience, he began to process the findings of his father, teacher Vít Hejný. He wondered why his students didn't try to understand the problems and preferred to memorize the formulas. His curiosity led him to experiment with non-standard tasks for which these formulas were not enough and which he applied to Milan. Based on these data, the so-called "Hejného method" was created; teaching focused on building schemes that lead children to creative thinking and independent search for solutions. Professor Milan Hejný and his team published several mathematical textbooks, and in 2013 he founded H-mat. This non-profit company's task is to develop and disseminate Hejný's method, which is already used today in hundreds of primary schools in the Czech Republic and abroad.
Two friends, Zuzana Kašparová and Terézie Ferjančeková, stand behind the so-called podcast about sex, intimacy, and physicality. They decided to open social taboos and share the experiences of themselves and their guests. Zuzana and Terézie met during their journalism studies in Brno, where they often came together on issues of intimacy and topics related to sex.
The podcast was originally created in 2019 for a few friends, but it quickly celebrated great success and won the Podcast of the Year award last year. In addition to the project Vyhonit ďábla, Terézie is studying sociology at Masaryk University, and Zuzana is continuing her studies in Balkan and Central European studies at Charles University. Together, they are also launching a new campaign called "Don't be a pig" dedicated to sexual harassment - more precisely, "soft" harassment such as shouting on the street or harassment at work.
