Immersive Learning Special Report

Immersive Learning immersive learning

Teaching techniques and learning continually evolve, and engagement today is at its highest level. Passive learning – sitting in a classroom while a teacher talks – is out. Active is in. The University of Miami is providing transformative learning spaces for students. It’s developing captivating classroom projects that demand immersive teamwork. And UM students explore research and new techniques that prepare them for future success. As Gregory J. Shepherd, dean of the School of Communication, sees it: “All these newest spaces allow students to actually engage in the learning process. They look and function just like a workplace. It’s hard to get the students out of those spaces."
