#12 VR/AR technologies in vocational education and training (scoping study)

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a major part of Australia’s education system. It is crucial to train practitioners with innovative technologies to gain fundamental skills in critical and creative thinking, ICT capability, and intercultural understanding for meeting Australia’s future workforce.

This project aims to explore the integrated utilisation of VR/AR technologies in the VET system. Innovative vocational education based on VR/AR can provide initial skilling and help workers to retrain as jobs and industries evolve.

The scoping study will be used to define desirable extended reality technologies for design and development/evaluation of appropriate skill training platforms in building construction.
