About this event

Full program:

Beyond Zoom 2 follows up the August 2020 conference Beyond Zoom: XR for Teaching and Research in the COVID-19 Era, which highlighted the role of XR in remote teaching, learning and research contexts. In this follow-up conference speakers will present their work in the context of the future promise and current reality of XR, particularly in response to changing world events like COVID, social polarization, and erosion of trust in scientific research and communication. Like many new technologies, XR is often spoken about as either a panacea for or contributor to any number of challenges in higher education. We will hear about creators expectations when they began a project, their experiences using building and using XR thus far, and where they think we can go next based on what they’ve learned.
