Creating Immersive Learning Experiences: Virtual Reality (VR) at Cal Maritime
Faculty Development Workshop
Wednesday, August 14, 2019 (9:55 – 11:25), ABS 101
Cal Maritime’s curriculum provides unique opportunities for hands-on, experiential learning, but sometimes diving under the Antarctic sea ice is just a bit too far for a class field trip. Instead, students can have a simulated experience using VR, which could be used for training and instructional videos, simulation, empathetic storytelling, and more.
Virtual reality provides new opportunities for faculty to create relevant and inspiring assignments and other materials for their courses. In this workshop, participants will hear from colleagues who have incorporated VR into their courses, learn how to use (very) basic equipment, and find out how VR is being used in higher education.
Presenters: Margot Hanson, Fred Reiman and Kate Sammler
