Deepening Local and Global Collaborations

Learning is becoming more customized, social, and global, with formal and informal communities, partnerships, and consortia being initiated to share resources and information pertaining to XR and immersive technologies as well as more broadly to education innovation. Not only do collaborations have the potential to reduce XR costs via cost-sharing approaches, but the future use of XR in connecting various partners has the potential to make those relationships more authentic (e.g., collaborating in a virtual world vs. email).

Define the need/opportunity if it has not been defined yet OR expand on the current definition if you believe that is necessary. Learner-, context-, and/or situation-specific conditions may be relevant here.

Illuminate any concrete examples of the need/opportunity in action.

Align effective pedagogies with XR and immersive learning technology usage that, in tandem, can fulfill the need/opportunity.

Imagine the possibilities for the future of learning, teaching, training, and/or scholarship if XR and immersive learning technologies are applied effectively in service of fulfilling the need/opportunity.

Scan any relevant literature you are aware of that relates to the need/opportunity; what are the most pressing overall themes you observe from the literature? (Share any direct URLs.)

Ask any questions that are critical for addressing in order to fulfill the need/opportunity.
