So you want to teach in virtual reality. 3D immersive platforms offer creative ways to teach better. But how? How much creativity is enough, or too much? Join us for this hands on demonstration and discussion of possible patterns for a given introducing our hypothetical students to our demo topic – wider aspects of collectible card gaming. After seeing examples, participants will consider and suggest ways they would design the learning scenes of the future. This workshop reviews, updates, and offers practice in design of 3D learning based on a 2016 VWBPE paper (Krebs et al, 2016).
- Participants will be able to identify and evaluate 3d learning designs
- Participants will be able to draft ideas for their own 3d learning designs

“MindScape” is related to brain research and what can refer to the human mind, how to develop, inspire and care for or manipulate it. 15 artists have created either a 2D or a 3D work referring to the topic by adding his or her idea, be it more realistic-physical or more mental or philosophical abstract. The 3D area is a moon landscape, where the 50-prim-installations are presented.
- Participants will be able to observe the installations and pictures and to interact with them.
- Participants will be motivated to develop their own idea about what MIND can be and do for them.
Accessibility: Provide a written script during the presentation. Bots provide information on the art installations.
