TeachLivE from New York: Developing Innovative Practices in Immersive Teaching Technology

Principal Investigator:

Krista Vince Garland, Buffalo State

The goal of this project is to pilot the TeachLivE™ virtual simulation classroom laboratory (housed at Buffalo State) among interested departments at the college, local k-12 administrative personnel, and SUNY Institutes of Higher Education (IHEs). The project will explore opportunities for leveraging the Power of SUNY to create an innovative academic program through which students and faculty across a range of disciplines and SUNY colleges collaborate to infuse in-vivo learning within the safety of the lab to effectively prepare and enhance teacher preparation programs within the SUNY system. Project Investigators will host three separate missioned full day workshops within the virtual classroom, conduct a mixed methods research study, and disseminate information from findings to stakeholders. Artifacts from this project will include the development of template curricula to guide other SUNY departments who are considering the establishment of a TeachLivE™ simulation lab and will be represented in the SUNY Learning Commons.
