In case you didn’t have the opportunity to attend iLRN’s 1st Meeting & Virtual Symposium, some of the videos are available to watch here!
The theme for the iLRN Corvallis, Oregon 2014 Meetup was “Immersed in the Future, Together: Scholarship, Experience, and Community”.
As the inaugural event for the Immersive Learning Research Network, the Meeting & Virtual Symposium featured expert researchers, theorists, practitioners, and developers, who showcased projects and products that offer “immersive” learning experiences enhanced by digital technology. Immersive environments include virtual worlds, video games, augmented reality applications, and other ways to give people a sense of “Being There”.
The meetup emphasized a communal interest in gathering expertise from across the disciplines, the need to meaningfully connect research to practice, and the critical necessity for people to have mutual experiences and frames of reference. These are hallmarks of meaningful Communities of Practice.
Thank you to all the attendants and presenters for their participation and enthusiasm at the event. We also would like to thank our host, Oregon State University, and particularly to Jon Dorbolo, Kimmy Hescock and Jonathon Richter for their support in the organization and success of iLRN’s inaugural event.
