Part of the 2020 Educators in VR International Summit! (sort of) This event moved from the 20th to the 27th to not conflict with another Ed in VR event. (Hope you still show up!) Social virtual reality is ideal for the intellectual salon, "a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation." (Wiki) Unlike watching a "sage on a stage," salons rely on intimate, face-to-face interactivity and debate, exposing the audience to learning outside traditional confines. Like a good dinner host, the best salon host sets a good table, attracts the right guests, provides a stimulating introduction, and gets out of the way. Other times the host needs to step in to gently force attendees out of their silent comfort zones. Our table is set in the social VR 3D world. Instead of PowerPoint, an entire world is created for attendees to inhabit, not just observe. Having created dozens of worlds for dozens of events for an AltspaceVR channel, Chuck Webster, MD, will share what works, doesn't work, and provide an overview on how to whip up a new world around a new topic almost every week.
