For any given learning task, we can ask: how do students learn? How could they learn better?

The emerging technologies of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) can enable new and an unparalleled depth and richness of data about how learners behave and how they learn across an extraordinary range of subjects. 

Through these VR demonstrations, seminars and workshops, participants will be taken from (perhaps) knowing very little about VR technology, to being able to write an actionable brief for an app. This process has been refined through the development of Project Mobius – the Innovate UK-funded joint project between Sublime Digital and the University of Glasgow - which aims to transform higher education through technology.

Please note: Participants are expected to attend both seminar and workshop sessions to work on an app project.
