Learn how to explore immersive technologies in teaching and learning.

Emerging technologies are contributing to educational transformation in ways that are beneficial in teaching and learning. This encourages more profound student engagement through more active and personalized learning and deeper participation in collaboration.  

This webcast will walk you through the practical applications and strategies of using these technologies in students’ learning. You will leave this training with a solid understanding of how to incorporate these technologies into your courses:

  • Adaptive learning
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Virtual, augmented, and mixed reality

Who Should Attend

This online training is appropriate for faculty, instructional designers, and faculty developers who are looking to incorporate emerging technologies into teaching and learning.


This webcast will walk you through three technologies and how to implement them in your courses:  

  • Adaptive Learning – This brings personalized, highly targeted education to large numbers of learners.  It offers individualized pathways where learners are able to move at their own pace based on mastery. You will learn the benefits of adaptive learning for students and instructors and how to implement it in your courses.  
  • Artificial Intelligence – Using AI can provide feedback on students’ work, assist with grading, and provide strong context for student learning and engagement.  The benefit to an instructor could be enormous, allowing for more individualized attention to each student. Our expert instructor will discuss a course developed with AI framework, the lessons learned, and what the future looks like in regards to using AI in teaching and learning.   
  • Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality – The benefits of these tools can provide students richer engagement with content in hands-on situations. We will explore how to implement these technologies on a budget, as well as the future development of VR, AR, and MR platforms.
