Do Virtual Worlds have a Place in Education?

Virtual Worlds 2008

This is the question being asked by the Scottish Regional Support Centres and Higher Education Academy (Scotland) at the Virtual Worlds Conference at the University of Stirling on the 29th October 2008.

Unlike many other events which deal with virtual worlds, like Second Life, this event is designed around giving participants hands-on experience of using this technology, seeing how virtual worlds are already being used to enhance teaching and learning.

For those new to life seen through the eyes of an avatar, the Scottish RSCs will also be running a series of workshops around Scotland to familiarise delegates with Second Life – one of the applications used to demonstrate learning sequences during the hands-on sessions.

Date:       Wednesday, 29th October
Venue:    University of Stirling
Cost:       £50
