The Emerging Media BC Community of Practice (previously Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality Group) is a working user group composed of faculty and students across academic departments, Information Technology and curriculum staff, interested community members based off-campus, and many others whose work and interests are situated at the intersection of virtual/augmented reality, research and education.

Meeting every second Friday of the month, the Emerging Media BC Community gets together to discuss and learn about not only the new VR/AR innovations but also many other emerging technologies. As a diverse community that features faculty, staff, students and industry professionals, the Emerging Media BC Community of Practice has a place and function for everyone.

Emerging Media BC Community of Practice serves three purposes:

  1. Provide a forward-looking forum in which we share current projects and bring expertise to forecasting and shaping the future of this area
  2. Provide a stimulating environment in which we solve concrete challenges in and around immersive technology in relation to education and research
  3. Provide a strong network to bring opportunities to collaborate across different communities that care about the role of virtual/augmented reality in education and research
