Exhibition for the opening of the Extended Reality Lab at TUM Campus Heilbronn

On October 10 2019, TUM School of Management will open its Extended Reality Lab at the Campus Heilbronn with an exhibition in cooperation with TUM Center for Digital Leadership Development (TUM CDLD). Visitors are invited to experience virtual and augmented reality technologies and explore their impact on leadership training and management education. The entry is free and everyone is welcome to join us at TUM Campus Heilbronn.

In close collaboration with various stakeholders, experts, and user groups the TUM CDLD will develop prototypical new formats and services to improve teaching and learning. All new formats will be available for the University in general any time soon and will foster the future orientation of the TUM as a place of lifelong learning . The TUM CDLD works, amongst other technologies, with virtual and augmented realities, digital coaching, and online learning environments.

The opening exhibition showcases best practices and new applications from academic and corporate partners, that were mainly developed at the TUM Center for Digital Leadership Development (TUM CDLD) led by Senior Vice President Prof. Dr. Claudia Peus (TUM).
