Educational Technology Support (ETS) contributed to the creation of the Emerging Media Lab, which is a high-end virtual reality (VR) mobile unit open to any UBC faculty, staff, and students to experience virtual reality simulations. There is no cost associated with using the media lab, and usage is currently in an on-appointment basis. The lab is currently located at Vantage College and will be housed in Scarfe in the Fall term.
ETS has piloted the use of VR with Dr. Elizabeth Jordan (ECPS) for teacher candidates to experience visual impairments and to design inclusive learning strategies. You can read more about the pilot in this blog post.
Come talk to ETS to learn more or to book a tour of the Emerging Media Lab.
