The New Virtual Field Trip: A Perspective from NC State's Entomology Bug World
Tuesday, March 18 | 12:45PM–1:45PM
Session Type: Professional Development
The presentation will give a development perspective to incorporating a virtual field trip into a newly created online entomology course. The field trip in the traditional course took students to a local farm to uncover the varying species of bugs at the farm, as well as where they lived and what they ate. As the course went online, the 3D virtual environment enabled virtual students to share experiences similar to those of the traditional students while learning the same content.
