The Research and Innovation team invites you to learn about the exciting research and scholarship activities our colleagues are engaged in.
Georgian College is exploring and integrating XR (virtual, mixed and augmented reality) in a variety of programs. Virtual reality (VR) is a relatively new and compelling medium for experiential learning. During this session, Rob Theriault will highlight some of Georgian’s XR activities.
Rob Theriault Is the Immersive Technology Manager for Georgian College. Rob has been a paramedic for the past 35 years and an educator for the past 20 years. After integrating virtual reality into the paramedic program, he proposed that virtual and augmented reality needed leadership to encourage adoption at the college. The rest is history.
