Immersive Technologies SIG

Who are we?

The ALT Immersive Technologies Special Interest Group was established in March 2020. The SIG will explore the use of immersive technologies as part of the student experience and the opportunities for academic colleagues to engage with the immersive experience. It is hoped that the SIG will also explore the notion of 'students as partners' in the development, procurement and use of digital technologies, especially those used indirectly for the purposes of assessment.
