Focus of the special collection update
Mobile Mixed Reality (MMR) is a rapidly developing technology that is being implemented in many different learning environments. A lot has changed already since the publication of our 2018 Special Collection on MMR, and this update to the 2018 special collection on MMR for 2019 will highlight the latest research in this domain.
Our call for papers to update the special collection of Research in Learning Technology journal will help explore the relevance of VR and AR in education- submit papers to the special collection on MMR for publication December 2019 now!
The following events will be hosted at Auckland University of Technology City Campus, and will also be available as video recordings for later viewing:
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.

Immersive Reality Bootcamp
24 – 28 June @ 10am-2pm
The Immersive Reality Bootcamp will introduce you to the state of the art of mobile augmented and virtual reality, grounded in the scholarship of technology enhanced learning. Come and join us for a 5-day bootcamp where you will design of authentic projects for innovative assessments guided by a design-based research methodology. At this bootcamp, you will have the opportunity to work in transdisciplinary teams to develop immersive reality environments that enable new approaches to teaching and learning relevant to your curriculum contexts. Find out more here.

We’re running the #CMALTcMOOC again starting 24 September – so it’ll be great to have you on board – please encourage your colleagues who may benefit from becoming part of the community and the journey to signup at https://cmaltcmooc.wordpress.com/contact/
The CMALT cMOOC aims to mentor and support applications for CMALT accreditation. CMALT is the Certified Member of the Association of Learning Technologies (available to either ALT or ASCILITE members https://www.alt.ac.uk/certified-membership) and recognises experience and expertise in the use of technologies for learning. This is available to academic and allied staff who are interested in or have successfully integrated the use of learning technologies in the course(s) they teach. We have developed the CMALT cMOOC (https://cmaltcmooc.wordpress.com) as a 7-week online support programme/network, and the next iteration of this starts on September 24 – signup at https://cmaltcmooc.wordpress.com/contact/
We have also developed the SoTEL NZ Research Cluster as a support network and the SoTEL NZ Symposium as a showcase and networking event for groups of educators exploring the scholarship of technology enhanced learning: https://sotel.nz
The research cluster is open to new groups beyond NZ, and the 2019 Symposium call for participation is now open.
