Thanks! Great to be here!

Welcome Mihaela, great to see you join us

did your department recognize the cost savings of your space/lab redesign?
Brett Christie
26:57
Many of you probably saw the CSU in the News latest edition featuring some of the AR/VR efforts in the system. There is quite the momentum. See https://www2.calstate.edu/csu-system/news/Pages/How-Immersive-Technology-is-Changing-the-Way-CSU-Students-Learn.aspx

I like that visual slide showing all the possible topics and then selected focus

I know some of you are not in STEM-ish areas but can probably see how virtual labs or forms of augmented/virtual reality may bring about engagement and learning opportunities for your students.
Just Joe (Fresno)
32:04
Did the students that did Excel-only then do a physical lab activity analogous to the virtual activity?
Just Joe (Fresno)
33:12
i.e., was an existing lab activity replaced with virtual, or was virtual an extra opportunity for that student group compared to the control group?
Sheela Pawar @ DH
33:34
I'm in philosophy so I can't see using virtual labs, but I'm thinking about the possibility of virtual debates, arguments, etc.
Sheela Pawar @ DH
34:18
plus this makes me want to go back to school and take virtual lab courses.
Mihaela Popescu
34:39
@sheela Pawar The problem with VR is that it is not yet a very social medium. It is very difficult to produce VR that incorporates real-time interaction with other humans (not digital objects)
mary paul
34:59
yes. and research methods
Brett Christie
35:03
@Sheila: So true - what a difference for those of us (at least me) that were going through pre-internet, AR, VR, etc.
Beth Weinman (Fresno)
35:39
I have to go :( Love the comments, though!
Just Joe (Fresno)
36:24
Fortunately, it seems (to me) that LIT doesn’t have to involve AR/VR - other forms of tech can still be used to great effect
Brett Christie
37:49
Thinking it is less boring should not be underestimated…engagement critical.
mary paul
41:18
engagement is active learning :)
Just Joe (Fresno)
43:01
We’ve previously discussed what to do with students that might not have a “home” to take experiments home to, and whether that sort of access to external resources is going to be detrimental to some
Brett Christie
45:45
@Kambiz: There was an echo with your mic open while Laura is talking so I closed your mic. You can unmute as you need to. Thanks.

60 participants in the LIT webinar yesterday…Good Turnout!
Kambiz Hamadani, CSUSM

I think there are massive online communities which are venturing into the lab research sphere.

As a historian, I could imagine virtual history simulations. Students would interact with historical characters in a specific setting and then have to make choices, predict results, and then analyze (simulated) outcomes. The tone would probably be 50% virtual lab and 50% video game!
