This innovative online short course on Immersive Technology in Education is by co-funded by the School of Education UCD, the Learning Enhancement Project and the Ubuntu Network. It stems from the research of Rachel Farrell, UCD School of Education, in the area of democratic pedagogical partnerships in teacher education and is designed and facilitated by Mark Baldwin of SchooVR. It is also informed by collaborative research between Rachel Farrell and colleagues in DCU and QUB, funded by SCOTENs.
The aim of the course is to foster an appreciation of the emerging role of immersive technology in education and to provide student teachers, subject methodology lecturers and co-operating teachers with a dynamic, innovative forum in which to explore the potential for immersive technology to optimise teaching and learning. Under the guidance of expert Mark Baldwin, participants will explore how immersive technology can be effectively used to interrogate Development Education and the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. We hope you enjoy the course and we look forward to meeting you at our first shared learning day.
