Abstract

This semester, Educational Technology Services staff offered a Praxis Fieldwork Seminar on Exploring Museum Applications of Augmented and Virtual Reality. The classroom component of the course focused on how digital technologies are shaping the work of museums and other cultural institutions and the scholarship of museum studies. This was complemented by a hands-on fieldwork component in which students worked with AR/VR tools to design their own exhibit, installation or app. Jenny Spohrer (Director of Educational Technology Services), Kelly Strunk and Palak Bhandari (Educational Technologist) will discuss why they wanted to build a project-based course around such new, emerging technologies and their process for and the challenges of conceptualizing, designing, and facilitating it.
