Perfect Storm Conference – Campfire Sessions @ Pastoe Fabriek

The Perfect Storm Conference took place on the 16th of February. During the Campfire Sessions Hogeschool Utrecht and CoVince did multiple sessions.

During the ‘The power of Holograms’ session, participants were taken into the power of visualization. Holographic, augmented and virtual reality visualizations and the application areas were discussed. Participants could experience different forms of visualization. The ‘Presenting in VR’ session gave a picture of an online learning journey in which students, students and teachers in training can practice presenting in a tutorial room, conference room or TV studio. By using virtual reality, a presenter can learn his skills by receiving feedback on non-verbal behavior. Moreover, the online learning environment, which is based on scientifically based educational design principles (Van Ginkel et al., 2015), offers opportunities for learning instruction, exemplary behavior and performing complex tasks. Participants were given insight into effects on learning with virtual reality based on recent research, opportunities this tool has for educational practice and a demonstration in a virtual environment.
