We hope you can join us for an EDUCAUSE Live Webinar at 1:00 pm (ET), today, December 14, 2017. We will be doing an overview of our articles “VR/AR: Stepping into the New Frontier of Learning” which are published in the EDUCAUSE Review.
Over 300 people have registered so we’re looking forward to a great discussion!
The new frontier of learning
Here’s the description of the event:
With VR and AR, we stand on the cusp of a new revolution in learning. This webinar shares insights from the EDUCAUSE Review Transforming Higher Ed Immersive Learning Series, “VR and AR: Stepping Into the New Frontier of Learning.” The series covered examples in STEM, digital humanities, storytelling and AI, medical education, and learning space design.
As we move into 2018, it is an opportune moment to highlight implementations and trailblazing projects. What initiatives are pushing AR and VR forward? What makes these projects stand out? Have institutions and programs faced unexpected challenges? Can we begin to identify emerging practices that will shape future learning environments?
As with the original series, the presenters are motivated not by the technology, but by its promise to bring about new models of learning that will lead to student success. Join us as we explore developments in immersive technology that will shape the future of education.
