Development of a strategic educational approach to the use of Augmented and Virtual Reality

Monash Warwick Alliance Education Fund - April 2018

The future of Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) applications are gaining ground as potentially game-changing technologies within industry, the workplace, to consumers, and also have the potential to engage students in innovative approaches to learning and teaching that have not been previously considered. In an educational setting, AR/VR technology opens new avenues for students to engage in a variety of simulation and collaboration opportunities within an immersive environment, thereby enhancing the learning experience for students using a mix of authentic and experiential processes.

Together Dr Irwyn Shepherd, Assessment Specialist from the Office of Learning and Teaching at Monash and Graeme Knowles, Principal Teaching Fellow, Warwick Manufacturing Group will develop a strategic educational approach for the use of Augmented and Virtual Reality in Engineering education at both universities, investigating new and innovative learning and teaching approaches that will have impact on education across the globe.
