Call: EDUCAUSE project exploring “3D technologies” in higher ed learning environments

Friday February 9, 2018


For a future online event, the ELI [EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative] is very interested in exploring the teaching and learning community’s work with what one might call “3D technologies,” that is virtual, augmented, immersive, and mixed reality technologies (aka the “Rs”).  We could also toss in voice-activated technology, such as Alexa, multidimensional printing, and advanced visualization environments.

For this exploration, our main interest is along these lines:

  • how they are being actively used in the curriculum at your institution;
  • how they are being integrated into your learning space designs and projects;
  • how you are evaluating their impact;
  • faculty development efforts to explore adoption in the curriculum;
  • changes and implications for instructional design practice.

As you can see, we are keenest on how institutions are actively working to integrate these technologies into the campus learning environment, be it in the curriculum and/or in some kind of learning space.

These don’t need to be revolutionary in scope. Instead, we are interested in efforts to move beyond initial experimentation to their use in actual courses, their deployment into classrooms, and what the impact/outcome has been. Are they meeting expectations? Are they just shiny objects? Are they over- or underrated? Is it worth the cost and expense? Etc.

Do you have a story to tell that falls into this space? If so, we’d very much like to hear about it. Please visit this very short Google form and give us a quick sketch.

Please share this with any and all of your colleagues.

Best M

Ps. Please forgive the cross-postings
