After a successful inaugural program, the Interactive Commons (IC) at Case Western Reserve University is looking to the brilliant and diverse university community for the next IC Fellows Cohort. The IC Fellows Cohort meets weekly from September to June and works together with the IC to become fluent in the application and best practices of mixed reality and Microsoft HoloLens as a teaching tool. Fellows will receive support in the design, building and execution of their applications from a team of experts on staff. Over the course of this multi-week program, IC Fellows will develop class plans with the goal of expanding extended reality (XR)-enabled courses across CWRU in ways that benefit learners. Participation is free and instructors from all fields are encouraged to apply.
Last year’s IC Fellows Cohort members were:
- Alp Sehirlioglu (Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Case School of Engineering);
- Laura Bruckman (Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Case School of Engineering);
- Maggie Popkin (Department of Art & Art History, College of Arts and Sciences);
- Michael Hore (Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering, Case School of Engineering);
- Michael Martens (Department of Physics, College of Arts and Sciences);
- Steven A. Hauck, II (Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences);
- Sudha Chakrapani (Department of Physiology and Biophysics, School of Medicine); and
