The XR Development Lab in the College of Education was established in 2022 with support from Unity. The lab is located in room 312 of Cleveland Hall.


Our XR Development Lab has a tripartite purpose:

  1. Review and create XR tools for education.
  2. Provide professional development to pre- and in-service teachers to raise awareness and digital literacy skills.
  3. Conduct research on XR in education.

Conceptual Framework

We work on the theory that all students can and need to be engaged in order to learn. The learning model that we ground our work in is the Comprehensive Task Engagement Model (Egbert, et al).
