With the increasing digitisation of classrooms, there is constant interest to adopt emergent technologies into teaching and learning. Virtual reality (VR) is one of the new technologies that piqued the interest of educators around the world with the promise to create new learning experiences. It is seen as a valuable tool to create immersive environments and provide a student-centered learning experience through interactions.

While the benefits of AR are apparent, widespread adoption of this technology remains a work in progress. There are many practical issues and concerns yet to be addressed, such as ease of use, scalability and comparative effectiveness. As such, steps taken by pioneers in adopting VR would be insightful for mindful educators.

In this two-part webinar we have invited professional educators from different institutions to share their experience in using VR technology in their classes. In particular, our guest speakers will cover the following topics:

  • Part I – 28 March 2022 (Monday) 14:30 – 15:30 (HKT, UTC+8)
    • Secondary students using VR for heritage discovery
    • Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning with VR
    • Leveraging VR creation in cultural heritage education
  • Part II – 4 April 2022 (Monday) 12:30 – 13:30 (HKT, UTC+8)
    • Practical VR & AR in studio-based learning for architectural design
    • Using web-based VR for crime scene investigation studies
    • Large-scale VR adoption in medical anatomy classes
