The Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality Group at UBC is a working 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.

The VR/AR Group 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 that brings opportunities for us to collaborate across different communities that care about the role of virtual/augmented reality in education and research
