The Mixed Reality Showcase
13 June 2019 @ 12-1pm
On June 13, come and experience a showcase of Mixed Reality projects currently underway at AUT. Hear from Jin Hong (CfLAT), Todd Stretton (Physiotherapy), Sally Britnell (Nursing), Claudio Aguayo and the AppLab, and Stephen Aiello (Paramedicine), about their journeys to developing immersive reality experiences for their students.
Immersive learning environments cover virtual CAVEs, desktop computing environments, tethered and mobile head mounted displays, as well as augmented reality glasses and mobile smartphone based implementations. Immersive learning environments can also be enhanced through the use of positional, haptic, and biometric feedback. This is a rapidly developing technology, and policy makers need to be informed of where the technology is headed, what are the best current options, and how best to meet educational goals through the investment in the design of learning environments that utilise these technologies (Walker, Jenkins, & Voce, 2018). This showcase explores the applications of immersive reality to higher education contexts – in particular Clinical Health, and High Risk Informal Learning Environments from participants in the MESH360 SOTEL Research Cluster https://www.researchgate.net/project/MESH360.

Are you interested in gaining international accreditation for your experience and expertise in integrating technology in teaching and learning? The Certified Member of the Association for Learning Technology (CMALT) provides peer reviewed recognition aligned with the UK higher education professional standards framework. The Centre for Learning And Teaching at Auckland University of Technology have developed a cMOOC (connectivist Massive Open Online Course) to support academics and allied staff develop portfolios for CMALT accreditation, and facilitate an experience of participating in a global network of higher education professionals. The 2019 CMALT cMOOC starts 25th February and will run for 7 weeks. The cMOOC is completely free and is aimed at participants sharing experiences as they explore developing CMALT eportfolios, and building their professional academic online profiles.
There will be a YouTube Livestream as an intro for anyone interested in finding out more about the cMOOC 10:30am 22nd February (New Zealand time) https://youtu.be/mmEFeLUrMEM
