XR Initiative

Educational Innovation through Extended Reality Initiative (XRI)

Collaborating units have created the XR Initiative to showcase a series of presentations, demonstrations and tours across campus to share innovative technologies with faculty, staff and students. The XR Initiative will launch with a half-day event with a mixture of presentations, faculty demonstrations, and facility tours that highlight units and resources available to faculty, staff, and students on innovative technologies followed by ongoing events for the fall 2021 semester.

Representatives from the IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning, IUPUI University Library – 3DVR Initiative, UITS Digital Education Programs and Initiatives, IUPUI Idea Garden, and the IUPUI Faculty Crossing will be on hand to talk about resources and future programming available.
