The fellowship is designed to recognize and provide aid to academic instructors using EON-XR.
EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new academic fellowship program for instructors and researchers all over the world. Fellows will be formally recognized within EON Reality’s digital and printed materials while also receiving both a certificate of recognition for their achievements utilizing EON-XR and funding for presenting their work at academic conferences.
“EON Reality has decided to award an academic fellowship for dedicated educators and researchers that are pushing the frontiers in developing the classroom of tomorrow. The fellowship — which can be awarded to any nationality — should be seen in the light of the rapid change that education is currently undergoing. Our eyes and brains work in 3D, therefore education supported by XR is both the natural way of learning and the future way of learning. The EON Reality fellows should be leaders in this exciting journey that will lead to radically new learning paradigms and knowledge communication.”Professor Bertil AnderssonChairman of EON Education
As for the qualifications, nearly any educator or researcher can be nominated for the academic fellowship. Faculty members at any institution can nominate themselves or their EON-XR-using colleagues for the fellowship, and EON Reality’s education team will choose the qualified applicants. Either four of the following criteria must be met or two criteria must be met for those who have completed the EON Reality Master Educator Course for acceptance:
