Virtual reality (VR) has been around for decades, but over the last few years we’ve seen a significant increase in enterprise use. Companies have begun implementing VR into recruitment, onboarding and ongoing training programs. This technology enables companies to simulate real-life scenarios, distribute training to employees regardless of location, assess employee performance and create a culture of inclusion. This session will focus on the uses of virtual reality by human resources professionals in a wide range of companies.

As the Executive Director of the Center for Advanced Entertainment and Learning Technologies, Charles Palmer oversees the design and development of ventures in new and emerging technologies, serves as the Program Lead for the undergraduate Interactive Media program, is an adviser to the Learning Technology Masters of Science program, and mentors students on research projects in the fields of augmented and virtual reality, mobile computing, web application development, video production, desktop manufacturing (3d printing), motion graphics and interactive games.
