Extended Reality Community of Practice

Extended Reality (XR) is an umbrella term referring to virtual, augmented and mixed reality as well as other immersive environments. 

This community of practice is a space where instructors using extended reality in their teaching can come together to connect, share experiences, good practices and resources, and to help to foster innovative teaching practices across UCalgary. Any campus community member who is curious is encouraged to join the community.
