A Working Session: Advancing a Virtual Teaching Environment • WHEN: February 26, 12pm-1:30pm • WHAT: Working Session to Develop Teaching Environment • WHERE: Virtual Working Environment
3D worlds are potentially important tools that are likely to gain wide spread adoption as colleges become populated with ‘digital native’ students. The International Center for Studies in Creativity (ICSC) at Buffalo State has conducted some initial experiments with a 3D Virtual Teaching Environment called Qube, which seems to offer an interesting combination of features that make it particularly appropriate for distance teaching, learning and creative collaboration in various disciplines (Below is a YouTube link that describes the platform). We need your help (ideas and suggestions) to further advance the development of this platform across disciplines. In this working session, we will:
• Demonstrate how we facilitate and teach our graduate creativity courses by using this innovative technology; • Offer participants a chance to experiment with the platforms and its features; • Provide participants immediate access and support when using platform for their class instructions.
A SUNY Innovative Instruction Technology Grant is supporting this working session. Thank you for your help. For questions and to send your RSVP, please contact John Cabra at email@example.com
