Lunch & Learn Tues Sept 12 noon – 1pm (arrive earlier to eat)
RESEARCH: Today, virtual and augmented reality is changing how people work and learn.
For instance, physicians can practice performing surgeries, first responders can simulate
how to react to situations that are extraordinarily dangerous or infrequent and military
personnel can experience risky scenarios without leaving the safety of their base.
With this as context, VITaL will serve as an incubator for research on the next wave
of virtual and augmented technologies that can enable experiences that would be impossible
or out of reach in a traditional learning environment.
COLLABORATION: Come to this lunch and learn how VITaL utilizes skills, knowledge,
and expertise from across all areas ITS and engages with faculty from across all colleges
at SDSU. This new Learning Research Studio, located in Adams Humanities (AH-1120),
promotes experimentation with curriculum design and the scholarship of teaching and
learning. Offering a smorgasbord of VR and AR tools, VITaL is also designed to leverage
partnerships with key industry players.
Registration required. This event is part of the CTL series New Frontiers in Higher Ed.
* Graduate students are welcome to attend all CTL events, space permitting. If an
