Driven by a desire to bring new technology closer to students and staff at Oxford University, we have developed a new Digital Innovation Lab to facilitate innovation and promote experiential learning.
What is the Digital Innovation Lab?
The Digital Innovation Lab is a space for experimentation with technology that isn’t readily available in other parts of the University. At the moment, you can try using a wide range of virtual reality (VR) equipment but other technologies will be added over time, driven by the demands of our students and academics.
The lab also has flexible furniture and an interactive screen to enable collaborative work.
Currently supported by a virtual team from IT Services, the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) and the OXR Hub, the lab is a space aimed at staff and students to encourage innovation and use of new technologies, and best of all, it’s free to use.
What do others use the lab for?
The lab is already proving popular with lots of groups across the University who have been looking into a wide variety of potential uses for the technology:
The sky is the limit! Book a time and try this excellent new technology for yourself.
