2018 Mini-grant Project

Simulations are used in many domains and the literature contains countless studies showing a significant increase in learning when simulations are compared to traditional pedagogy. Therefore, this project proposes to purchase three virtual reality devices to study the effects of virtual laboratory activities on learning, motivation, and engagement in biology CEGEP classes. By exposing students to these simulations and conducting individual and group interviews, we hope to gain insights on the experience of students in a VR simulation that will be invaluable to building pedagogical scenarios around these simulations.
