Toolpoint After Work Talk „ Augmented Reality-Enabled Laboratories “

House of Lab Science, Garstligweg 8, 8634 Hombrechtikon15.04.2019 17:00 – 19:00 | Add to calendar

Dear all,

Mastery of laboratory skills requires a deep understanding of instrumentation, manual tasks and complex protocols. Oftentimes, these skills are difficult to learn when presented orally or within a written manual. To enhance laboratory outcomes, we have created, implemented, and assessed an Augmented Reality (AR) lab program that can be used in any lab world-wide with minimal set-up time. AR is an emerging field that uses computer technologies to overlay realistic images, sounds and other sensations within your environment. Our AR program enables trainees to learn at their own pace and within an interactive environment. 

This presentation will include details of development and implementation of our AR lab safety program, as well as our quantitative assessment which demonstrated that trainees were more enthusiastic and retained more information using our AR program when compared to trainees that were given the same material in a traditional lecture-based format. Additional highlights will include the ZHAW (Wädenswil) and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Worcester, MA USA)-based team, current projects and future opportunities. Following the presentation, attendees will be encouraged to use our AR program.
