Teachers and students on both sides of the Atlantic will explore innovations in teaching and learning around augmented reality and virtual reality in a transatlantic exchange program. For this, UG/Campus Frsylân was awarded for a second time a Virtuele Internationale Samenwerkingsprojecten (VIS) grant from the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
American and European students will use their phones to create 3D scans of commodities (ranging from a pair of sneakers to a Big Mac) and upload them along with an audio reflection to a Virtual Reality library. A series of EU/US virtual exchange events will be dedicated to presenting and discussing these 3D scans within the context of course content.
VIS grants are intended for the design, development and implementation of a virtual international cooperation project. In this project, Campus Fryslân will partner with Elon University (North Carolina, USA) on virtual exchange relating to the BSc. Global Responsibility & Leadership course Global Cultures and Local Commodities.
