XR and education meeting in Tokyo

Do you teach courses for VR content development or AR app development? Are you working on school curriculum for a degree focus on XR development? We are a group of educators who are willing to develop good school curriculum and outline courses for VR/AR content development. Please come and join us.
 
The ED-EX preparation group is holding a meeting and discussion, co-located with VRCAI and SIGGRAPH Asia 2018 Tokyo this December. This meeting is sponsored by the ACM SIGGRAPH Education Committee. We hope that educators, administrators, and researchers who teach and/or develop curricula for XR related subjects will be able to join this meeting.
 
We will have two discussions. The first will discuss the current status of XR (VR, AR, MR) technology, applications and content development in education. This includes courses, curricula and degree programs which focus on XR, and how educators and educational institutions are responding to recent developments in XR technologies and applications. We aim to produce a report based on this discussion.
The second discussion will focus on planning our first official workshop, ED-EX 2019, which will be co-located with SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 Brisbane. We are excited to announce this workshop proposal, which includes hands-on XR training for educators and peer-reviewed position paper discussions.
