Dr. Morey’s interest in emerging technologies, specifically Augmented Reality (AR) as a writing tool, its potential use for experiential learning, and how it might be used pedagogically across disciplines, will be a great asset to his Faculty Fellow tenure. Some of Dr. Morey’s proposed tasks include:
- Developing outreach initiatives including faculty discussions and a focus group on how AR is/can be used throughout campus to enhance teaching and learning.
- Assisting OIT with assessing emerging digital technologies for Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and accessibility compliance.
- Producing AR-related teaching and scholarship along with instructor training in AR to help position UTK as an emerging leader in using AR for education.
The OIT Faculty Fellow Program assists in advancing exemplary teaching and enriching the experience of students by implementing projects that enhance their department’s use of instructional technologies. Faculty Fellows also promote the services available through OIT. Fellows are appointed each academic year.
