Hi students,

On the 9th of december we’re organizing a meetup about the use of VR in the Dutch educational system. We will have 2 panels with students, companies and faculty members of Universities. 

The meetup is especially for students, first of all we will have a look what everyone is doing with VR/AR at university (or what they would like to learn about it) and how this relates to the industry. I understood from some people that they thought the meetup was about VR as a learning tool, but we’re going to focus more or what is taught about VR at Universities and Hogescholen and the projects students are doing. We will also have a look at how company or other schools can help with these projects.

Participating universities will be: Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, HvA, Filmacademie and more!

We’re co-organizing the meetup with the VR/AR Association, who will present a case study on VR being used in language learning and presentation rehearsals.

If you have any topic suggestions or questions please email Nina at nina@vrbase.amsterdam

"To begin with, Virtual Reality is a part of computer science and it represents a new approach to computer science. Instead of treating the computer as a box that's out there that is supposed to accomplish something, you put a human being in the center and say, "Let's look at the human being closely. Let's see how people perceive the world or how they act. Let's design a computer to fit very closely around them, like a glove, you might say. Let's match up the technology to exactly what people are good at.""
