He has been influential in the culture of design and remains unmatched through his passion of bridging the gap of AR/VR technology through our daily lives today. Park plans share with Lehigh’s AR/VR community of practice his experiences developing multiple AR/VR certificate programs and an M.A. in UX/UI Design and Development highlighting best practices, tools, and lessons learned. Kevin will also be sharing case studies and bringing additional AR/VR tools to explore.

CITL unveils new Visualization Lab

Lehigh's highly anticipated Visualization Lab opens later this month in E.W. Fairchild-Martindale Library.  It features several innovative visualization tools, including a MultiTaction Curved iWall for the collaborative investigation of digital information at large scale.  In addition, the Lab is outfitted with an HTC VIVE system, which provides users with an immersive virtual reality experience.

The Visualization Lab is open to faculty, students, and staff following a brief series of required training sessions with a member of the Visualization Lab Support Team.  It has been envisioned as a collaborative space that can effortlessly shift from the examination of visual data on a vast pixel canvas to the evaluation of the pedagogical value of virtual reality environments--a place to explore; a place to create; a place to solve.

The Lab's core visualization technologies include:

Lehigh’s Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning purchased two high-end HTC Vive virtual reality systems, including one housed in a second-floor lab at the College of Education. Garrigan, who requested the purchase, will use the system in the proposed pilot project, but he also has been training students, faculty and community leaders in its use and testing its capabilities.
