June 13, 2019. 10 a.m.–3 p.m.
Lower Level, Harrison Libraries

Ever explored a cell from the inside, virtually dissected a frog, or maybe explored a museum remotely?  Come explore how augmented and virtual reality can help improve student learning and generate excitement in the classroom. In collaboration with the Libraries, the Office of Technology Services, and Apple, the Faculty Center for Learning Development is holding a summer institute for faculty and staff interested in learning more about these emerging technologies and how they can be integrated into teaching and learning.  Virtual reality immerses the learner in a virtual world and allows them to explore and interact with three-dimensional computer-generated environments. Virtual reality can be explored via a headset and handheld devices, or with something as simple as Google Cardboard and their phone. Augmented reality superimposes 3-dimensional computer-generated images on the learner’s view of the real world, enhancing their real-world experience, allowing them to interact with objects or virtual objects with the use of a tablet or phone.

Lunch will be provided.

Interested faculty and staff should contact FCLD at 768-4661 or e-mail fcld@hartford.edu to sign up.  Space is limited to 20 participants.
