About this program:
During this semester, we are launching the first of what we hope to be several future academic innovation teams. An academic innovation team is a group of faculty and academic staff who gather monthly to focus upon a specific academic innovation, with the ultimate goal of enhancing teaching or pursuing a scholarly project.
Step 1 Learning
This first team will focus upon augmented and virtual reality in the higher education. In our first meetings, we will learn about one another’s goals and interest in this area, and focus upon learning about augmented and virtual reality in education through research articles, demonstrations, guest presenters, and experimenting with some of the technologies.
Step 2 Applying Your Learning
After building a foundation, members of the academic innovation team will choose an individual or group project that seeks to apply augmented and/or virtual reality to a specific lesson, course, or content area. Or, others may choose to engage in a formal scholarly project related to enhancing student learning through augmented and/or virtual reality.
Future meeting dates:
Thursdays: March 22, April 19, June 21, July 19)
2:30 to 4:00pm Central – (CUW-In R006)
3:30 to 5:00pm Eastern – (CUAA-Krieger 103)
