Emerging Media Lab Drop-in: Demos, Discussion, and Engagement with Learning Technologies

June 3, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


This event is part of the CTLT Spring Institute, taking place from May 31–June 3, 2022. To view all events, visit https://institute.ctlt.ubc.ca/spring-institute/spring-institute-events/

The Emerging Media Lab (EML) specializes in the development of teaching/learning and research projects that use emerging technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality, or machine learning.

UBC faculty members come from a wide range of disciplines and possess varying levels of technical experience and expertise. They collaborate with EML in several ways: as principal investigators and subject-matter experts on projects they initiate, as faculty in residence, or by integrating coursework with EML itself.

In this in-person drop-in session, attendees will join Emerging Media Lab’s faculty and student workers for live demos and Q&A with our project teams. They will also hear from EML staff on the different ways to get involved with EML, what EML can offer UBC faculty for their teaching practice or research. And finally, they will have the opportunity to speak directly with UBC faculty members, hearing first-hand their experience of working with EML.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to watch or try our Fall 2021-Spring 2022 projects, as well as past work. If you’ve never tried virtual reality or augmented reality before, the EML team will walk you through the process, and will demonstrate some of EML’s past projects.

As a result of this drop-in, you will:
– Have an understanding of the resources EML makes available to faculty and students.
– Understand how to join EML or propose a teaching/learning or research project.
– Gain inspiration for how similar tools could be used in your own classroom or research.
– Experience using technologies like virtual reality and augmented reality.
