As part of the OCADU and Ontario Tech (UOIT) Digital Human Experience initiatives, please be aware of the upcoming VRTO development workshop on designing VR experiences. This fantastic VR development learning opportunity will be colocated with the Virtual Reality Toronto Conference. In partnership with OCAD U, Ontario Tech student participants will be engaged in a 1-day intensive workshop, held on May 31, 2019, letting you jump into immersive VR design and development. During the workshop you will be part of a collaborative, interdisciplinary team of both developers and non-developers that will create a new VR artifact, and will go through the development cycle from design to development to assessment, using Unity3D and industry-standard VR hardware, provided at the workshop. Bring your passion and interest in VR and learn to transform this into engaging virtual experiences.

VRTO, Ontario Tech, and OCAD U have made 20 spaces at the workshop available for students, with a 50% discount (total of $22.60 per ticket).

This unique professional conference and solutions-focused symposium, held June 1-3, 2019, is an exciting opportunity for students to engage with industry. We look forward to your participation.
