Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it
This online seminar from UCC Library explored the ways in which VR has been used as an innovative instructional application and provided insights into the “when,” “why” and “how” of using VR to maximize learning impact and support student engagement and success. Presenters were from a range of backgrounds and spoke on their experiences in VR, whether that be sharing knowledge on embedding VR in a course or facilitating access through support services like libraries.
Learning outcomes for the seminar were to (1) consider the benefits and potential of VR in education in enhancing learning, teaching, and overall digital capability, (2) identify possible VR applications for their own teaching and learning, (3) understand the resources and requirements needed for using VR in educational contexts, (4) consider the enhancements to the interdisciplinary learning experience using virtual and immersive technologies.
This OER provides teaching and learning material in technologies applied to sustainability and resilience system design solutions, in particular, electronics prototypes involving sensors and actuators.
This workbook takes the student on a conceptual journey aiding their understanding of what is meant by the quantitative-qualitative research process in contemporary legal empirical research.

Step by step the the lecture connects the student to core concepts, pressure points and key readings to foster their idea and focus their decision.
The barriers to peace in terrorist societies can seem senseless to outside observers, and students of psychology and social sciences aim to gain knowledge to understand why. We present a role play exercise in which students take the perspective of terrorists or landowners based on the N. Ireland conflict, to promote their understanding.
