Our first open day

Posted by Manuel Frutos-Perez on June 13 2013 at 8:02 p.m.

Thanks to everyone who came along to our open day in Second Life yesterday. We had a great day with visitors from countries as far afield as the USA, Australia, Greece, New Zealand and the U.K.  It was great fun and wonderful to meet people who are excited and enthused about using virtual worlds in education. We already have applications from people taking advantage of our early bird discount, both for the whole course and individual modules.

A couple of our visitors were interested in doing PhDs in virtual world education, and we’re very happy to accept applications from prospective distant or attending research students. We already have PhD students registered with us who are carrying out research into the educational uses of virtual worlds in computing and education, and they have been able to take the taught credit requirement from modules in the MA. If anyone has an interest in researching this area, we’d love to hear from you at elearning@uwe.ac.uk .

Our next open day is 18th July, so please come along and see us at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Innovation%20at%20UWE/40/161/27 .
