Think Outside the Books: Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality for Education at Leiden University

21 November 2018 13:30 - 17:30 PLNT, Langegracht 70, Leiden

Will Virtual and Augmented Reality influence the future of education? To keep Leiden University at the forefront of AR & VR, the Centre for Innovation has been exploring the possibilities (and pitfalls!) of virtual and augmented reality for teaching and learning.

On November 21st, we’ll present VR and AR-applications developed together with faculties. Teachers and students will reflect on the potential benefits for education. And, of course, you’ll also be able to experience the apps yourself.
