The current classroom experience across colleges and universities is typically based on one or more of the following: lecture, discussions, hands-on activities, laboratory experiments and knowledge assessment activities. Our applied research team (S.M.U.R.F) in the Department of Computer Science at GCU is investigating the potential of adding a new dimension to the classroom experience: mixed reality, i.e. the combination of virtual reality, augmented reality and interaction with real objects. The use of virtual reality technology while interacting with physical objects in class provides multiple opportunities for enhancing learning activities from a pedagogical and student engagement perspectives. Our team’s current research focuses on the following question: “What is the feasibility of virtual/mixed reality environments as experiential learning environments?”

Ed Koeneman is an electrical engineering technology instructor here at Grand Canyon University. Ed has an impressive background with 25 years of experience as a product design engineer, with 15 of those years spent running a medical device company that Ed and his father founded. The company, Kinetic Muscles, creates rehabilitation devices to help people who have suffered from strokes regain proper function of damaged limbs.

When Ed sold the company, GCU’s engineering program was starting to pick up speed. This was during a time that Ed was mentoring several dozen biomedical engineering students at Arizona State University – it was here that he found his calling and discovered that being a teacher was the right career for him.

What does it take to pioneer a new program at GCU? Just ask Isabelle Ketchum and Samantha White, who will soon be GCU’s first graduates from the new environmental science program.  This program immerses students in environmental biology, chemistry and engineering to prepare them for the demanding fields they are about to enter. Each semester the program continues to grow with students looking to learn more about the challenges facing the environment and creating strategies to keep people safe while bringing greater awareness to the importance of maintaining ecosystems.
