Specific project objectives:

ACCELERATE will draw on the spirit of practice-led creative innovation that art and design lecturers have been invoking since March. It will focus on the potential transformative role of immersive technologies (that is, augmented, virtual, and mixed realities, also known as extended reality (XR)) in the teaching of art and design while recognising that many learners face significant challenges in engaging effectively with XR technologies: disabilities; complex personal circumstances; low quality devices; poor and unreliable internet access. It proposes to create a new prototype platform (Intellectual Output 4) for accessible immersive teaching in art and design that aims to democratise XR technology rather than limit to those with the best equipment and the fastest connections. The collaborative development of this immersive ecosystem—open-source, scalable, sustainable—as a gateway for art and design lecturers and students with little or no previous experience of XR technologies will be informed by a considered evaluation of the impact of COVID-19 on art and design teaching at the partner universities (Intellectual Output 1), the co-drafting of a methodological guide (Intellectual Output 2) and the co-designing of a standalone online training course aimed at lecturers (Intellectual Output 3); it will be populated by teaching materials including co-created case studies (Intellectual Output 5) that will draw on the shared expertise and perspectives of the project partners.
