4:00 PM PANEL DISCUSSION: A New Dimension of Learning: Virtual Reality (VR) Learning Environments Escaping the Limitations of Existing Spaces
The evolution of technology has taken us into a world where virtual instructions can now combined with physical learning spaces to enhance student exploration, collaboration and discussion. No longer will it just be the traditional learning spaces of ‘bricks and mortars’. This panel will discuss the challenges and solutions they have encountered, in particularly, how Virtual Reality technologies and spaces can enhance and support an individual’s learning outcome. Explore the possibility of creating new realities for our learning spaces through these questions:
- What does a Virtual Learning Environment mean to you?
- Are Virtual Spaces sufficient for the learning and teaching goals of faculties and students?
- To what extent can virtual spaces complement and integrate into physical leaning spaces? Do you think this will be our future?
- How do you envision virtual spaces in 20 years?
