Today's date is Wednesday, August 23, 2017
Futures Enthusiasts Meet-Up (FEMU) for May 2017 : Futures Enthusiasts are people who are keen to be a part of the next wave of developments in higher education using technology and concepts to innovate learning and teaching practices. Other events...
Come along to the next Futures Enthusiasts Meet-Up (FEMU) event on Wednesday, 31 May 2017 between 4-5pm to meet, share ideas and team up with other education futures enthusiasts from the UWA community, Perth start-ups, industry or technology specialists.

The FEMU event for May will feature a presentation by Dr Michael Ovens on Virtual Reality in Higher Education. Followed by a Networking Session.

Virtual Reality is considered by some to be a replacement for traditional face-to-face teaching methods, and a poor one at that. This presentation by Dr Michael Ovens, a recent Humanities doctoral graduate and educational Virtual Reality developer, will contest this position by arguing that Virtual Reality can be used to enhance rather than replace traditional teaching if educators and designers focus on the three things Virtual Reality does best: immersion, interaction, and impossibility.

Virtual Reality experiences will be made available for trial on the Futures Observatory's HTC Vive device.

Register for this FEMU event via the Eventbrite link below.
