If your institution would like to further explore the methods and outputs from Near Future Teaching, please get in touch. 

We are able to offer keynote talks and run workshops on the values-based, co-design methods we used, and we can help introduce such approaches in other institutions wishing to adopt similar ways for building education strategy and vision.

Lead by Dr Andrew Sherlock, School of Engineering, the Centre for Research in Digital Education will contribute to this project to improve understanding of teaching, learning and assessment through augmented and mixed reality.

Augmented Reality (AR) allows digital content to be overlaid onto the physical environment, typically on devices such as glasses, tablets and smartphones.   More recently, semi-immersive Mixed Reality (MR) devices, usually headsets (e.g. Microsoft Hololens), allow 3D holograms to be placed in the physical environment.
