This course has been postponed. A new date will be announced. Check back or email us at email@example.com if you have further questions.
One of the biggest buzzwords in the digital technology world today is the “Metaverse”. However, you might be asking yourself: What does the Metaverse really mean? What are the implications of technologies like Virtual Reality for work and society? If these are questions that you are wondering about, then this workshop is for you!
Led by Ryan Androsoff, who chairs our popular Digital Executive Leadership Program, this Metaverse 101 workshop will give you a hands-on opportunity to experience Virtual Reality technology and learn about how it is being used today in a wide range of professional settings. Ryan and his team have been pioneers in Canada in using VR for training public sector leaders. Through two live, virtual workshop sessions as well as self-paced activities, you will learn about both the theory and concepts behind “the Metaverse” as well as have the opportunity to experience it first-hand.
You will receive a Meta Quest 2 Virtual Reality headset to use for the week of the workshop to allow you to have “hands-on” experience with this rapidly evolving technology. Sign-up today for this unique, interactive learning experience and get ahead of the curve in understanding what the Metaverse and VR technology might mean for the future of your work!
