GS03 Building the Future Together

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Thursday, July 27

Regency Ballroom

Augmented, virtual, and other enhanced reality technologies are in their infancy; the world is only beginning to explore the potential of these technologies. This presents our industry with a unique opportunity: Instead of just reacting to the available technologies, we can provide input that helps shape them. During this general session, we will engage in a discussion exploring how the worlds of AR, VR, and other enhanced realities can integrate with learning and development. We will explore what the opportunities are and what barriers limit our ability to harness the potential of these technologies. We will examine what we need these technologies to do and what resources we need in order to utilize them in our work. The discussions in this session will help drive a Guild Research report that summarizes the state of VR, AR, and enhanced realities within our industry—and, more importantly, what our industry needs from the technologies going forward.
