|In this short, fully online course, we will explore the affordances of virtual reality technologies for higher education. It will cover:|
The potential for immersive educational experiences
Is VR the re-birth of embodied cognition in higher learning?
Where does VR fit in respect to learning theories?
How is VR influencing what we know about teaching and learning?
We will wet our virtual taste buds on some VR applications that are currently being used for teaching and learning in higher education and consider the design principles that are shaping VR education experiences.
We will perhaps do a bit of imagining (in the digital realm) of possible visions for the future of VR in teaching and learning and in particular the opportunities at the ANU.
