The #CPDinVR First Anniversary Event
- July 5th 2018 -
In June 2017 I decided to try something that hadn't been done before in education - to host free continuing professional development (CPD) inside virtual reality using the stunning Engage platform from Immersive VR Education. With the success of this inaugural event, #CPDinVR quickly turned into a monthly engagement with educators and VR enthusiasts from more than twenty countries joining me along with guests from the BBC, HTC Vive, NVIDIA, Lifeliqe and more.
On July 5th, to celebrate one year of these sessions, I am delighted to present the single biggest event in #CPDinVR history. Starting at 5pm here in Dubai (9am EST / 2pm UK) there will be six hours of free back-to-back sessions inside Engage including presentations, panel discussions and more.
If I said that the lineup was stellar, it'd be an understatement and I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of the speakers for giving up their time to join us and move VR in Education forwards.
So who's going to be there?
I'm glad you asked...
The schedule is currently being finalised but the most up to date lineup can be found below complete with various time zones. This will be updated in the next few days and a final schedule will be sent to those that register to attend.
#CPDinVR events are free to attend but there is a fixed room capacity within Engage so registration is essential. Please click the link below to register for the anniverary event and ensure that you enter a valid email address so that joining instructions can be forwarded to you.
If your plans change and you are no longer able to attend the session, please get in touch as soon as possible so that your place can be reassigned. There are limited spaces in each event and there is always a waiting list when sessions are full.

I have produced a set of documents to support users who join the #CPDinVR sessions:

Engage Controls - control layouts for all platforms.
Steam Guide - if you are new to the Steam platform, this guide will walk you through the sign up process and how to find and download Engage from Steam.
