Integration of Virtual Reality in Higher Education – What We Have Learned from Different Cases in Science Teaching?
This talk will provide the participants with a critical account/debate on the use of virtual laboratories and other virtual learning technologies in science education. This by giving an overview of our experiences and discuss examples and cases where the integration has worked and where it needs improvement. This will include a discussion of the effectiveness on the use of other virtual tools, such as educational videos and collaborative learning tools in the higher education. The aim is, that our examples will spark a debate and inspirer the attendees to use the many tools on their own, but also to be considerate on when and how to use them.
