Construction on the Experiential Learning Hub is well underway on the 6th floor in Southam Hall. Announced in February, the creation of the Hub is due in part to a generous $2-million investment from the province’s Training Equipment and Renewal Fund, matched by the university.

Informed by the principles of creativity, the Hub will invite students and instructors to engage and experiment with XR educational technologies to gather, share, and develop new ideas.

The Hub is scheduled to open in September 2023 and includes a Teaching Studio, Creation Studio, and Experience Studio. These three studios will support experiential learning through using and developing XR media using tools and support provided in part by the Future Skills XR Grant in partnership with EON Reality.

In the meantime, the TLS Immersive Learning Team is offering Virtual Reality (VR) and Experiential Learning Hub Drop-In sessions in the Future Learning Lab to introduce instructors to using these technologies in the classroom. Interested Faculty can consult our Events and Workshops for upcoming dates or request a consultation to learn more about VR and Experiential Learning.
