On Thursday the 27th, last October, Will Hurst spoke about the use of eXtended Realities (XR) for teaching and learning. He did so at the Design Research & Innovation, or DRIVE, festival during Dutch Design Week. Will talked specifically about the applications on virtual reality for biochemistry education and augmented reality for supporting medical students. The Information Technology group has looked at these applications in collaboration with the WANDER lab.
"Speaking at the DRIVE event was a really unique experience" says Will. "I got to showcase our work and present some demo videos of the XR applications. I was alongside other speakers, including Prof. Marnix van Gisbergen (Breda University), Niki Smit (Monobanda) and Femke Bijlsma (Kossmanndejong)."
