The Opportunity

Virtual reality and augmented reality are facets of XR and are beginning to make a compelling use case for organizations in the private, public, and government sectors. XR-enhanced jobs are projected to grow to 23 million by 2030 and XR training is estimated to contribute $294 billion to the global economy by 2030. As organizations rethink their workplace strategies to meet the needs of an increasingly remote workforce, XR provides an impactful, cost-effective option to deliver engaging learning experiences at scale and across geographical locations. To support this job growth, Learning and Development (L&D) professionals need to acquire the skills to support XR learning design and delivery in their organizations. Whether you are working in or preparing for training in your organization, teaching in an academic setting, or building an L&D career in industry or academia, XR learning design and delivery can augment your career while delivering value to your learners.

Through this partnership, Professional and Executive Education at Rutgers and edstutia will be furthering their missions by merging an institution that has supported the learning needs required to build a strong workforce for over 250 years with an emerging technology company to collaboratively lead the way in developing the workforce of the future. This will truly bring together both old and new over their shared values of affordable, relevant, customizable and accessible education.

What You Will Learn

The program runs over 10 weeks with a blend of live online instructor-led sessions and a variety of asynchronous content. 

Along with knowledge gain, participants work on additional assignments and projects for a scaffolded – yet independent – learning experience. This may include reading articles/reports, analyzing tools or use cases, hands-on collaborative sessions in VR and AR, designing projects, and more. You should anticipate additional time to complete pre-reading/pre-viewing assignments, work on a team project incorporating VR and AR, and to explore more resources independently.

This program is intended for human resources practitioners or managers, training company professionals looking to expand their practices, and educators responsible for preparing job-ready candidates into the workforce who are interested in developing a formalized skill set in future-ready learning design and delivery. Other job titles for ideal candidates include, but are not limited to: entry-level human resource professionals, educators and corporate trainers, L&D leaders and strategists, instructional designers, independent trainers and consultants, and individuals seeking a career in human resources.
