Pedagogical Technology CoP – Virtual Reality Update

Center for Teaching Excellence

Virtual reality (VR) gives students the opportunity to explore at their own pace, to experience distant places any time, any where at little or no cost and to understand a different perspective. VR has been shown to engage students and enhance learning. So how can we provide these opportunities to our students?

Join us to see how VR has been used in classes and explore possibilities for additional opportunities.
