IALLT Feature Webinar: Engagement and Immersion in VR Narratives

Presenter: Nicole Mills, Senior Preceptor in Romance Languages and Literatures

In this webinar, Nicole Mills describes a Paris Narrative Virtual reality (VR) project in which four Parisians from different backgrounds recorded their personal, social, and professional lives with a VR camera. Each Parisian VR narrative allows language learners to vividly experience Parisian life in visual, auditory, and sensory modalities. The webinar showcases how this deeply contextualized and culturally immersive platform and its accompanying teaching materials target the cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and social dimensions of engagement (Philp & Duquesne, 2016).
