Immers-Ed global hackathon

The Oxford X-Reality Hub, in partnership with the TORCH (en)coding Heritage Network, presents Immers-Ed, a multi-disciplinary hackathon.

Modelled on traditional hackathons, this event brings together participants to creatively solve a problem during three days of intense collaboration. 

Seeking to mobilise global collaboration to create solutions to address COVID-19 challenges and post-pandemic recovery, there will be four challenges to address: 

  • Cultural Heritage: How can technology facilitate inclusivity and access in the cultural heritage sector?
  • Medicine/Healthcare: How can we redesign medical training, foster global collaboration, and improve patient care to save lives? 
  • Education: How can we create more engaging learning experiences and foster academic success especially in distance-learning environments?   
  • Environmental Sustainability: How can we emerge out of the pandemic and create more sustainable environmental practices?  

Participants are invited to apply either individually or together with colleagues, as part of a team.

No experience with hackathons or technical knowledge is required, just curiosity and a passion for building, creating and learning.
