Collaborative Interactive Science Learning in Immersive Virtual Reality

2 September, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Collaborative Interactive Science Learning in Immersive Virtual Reality
A presentation on the future of learning using Immersive Virtual Reality!

This online event is a talk given by Professor Mihye Won of Curtin University:

Mihye is Associate Professor at the School of Education at Curtin University. She has been investigating how to engage students in science learning in meaningful ways. Currently, she is leading two Australian Research Council Discovery Projects—one on exploring educational possibilities of immersive virtual reality, and the other on teaching for creativity in science class.

Interactive, immersive, and collaborative learning—this is what I think the future of learning should be and my research team has employed immersive virtual reality to put this idea into practice. Using immersive virtual reality, students can dive into the molecular world and interact with molecules to learn about their structure and interactions. Throughout their journey, there are collaborative activities that encourage students to bounce ideas off of each other and help bring science concepts to life. Based on the research findings from over 130 undergraduate students, I discuss the design considerations for productive learning in immersive virtual reality.
