Innovation Room #8, Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Education and Learning.

The smartphone game Pokémon Go enticed a whole generation of screen-glued children to go outside and discover the world, by adding elements of virtual reality to ordinary streets and parks. This mix of the real and the virtual is called augmented reality. Augmented reality also promises to open whole new possibilities for university education to give students a deeper and ultimately more effective learning experience. How can this be done and what are the learning effects and the educational and technical challenges?

Are you involved in university education or educational research and development? Then learn about exciting innovations and experiments in this field and try it out yourself in this Innovation Room of the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Education and Learning.
