Laying the Foundation for a University-wide XR Initiative

In the final episode for season one of the MiXR Studios podcast, we talk with Tom Finholt, the Dean and a Professor of Information at the University of Michigan’s School of Information. Dean Finholt was instrumental in the early work in collaborating with faculty and other deans at the University of Michigan to explore what the University should be doing in terms of XR for research and pedagogy. Dean Finholt was strongly encouraged by alum and external advisory board member, Jamie Voris to invest in XR technologies broadly across the University to enhance teaching and learning. As we wrap up our first season, I couldn’t think of a better person to share his insights and thoughts about where we have been and where we should go with the XR Initiative.
