"Emerging Technologies and Pedagogies in Second Language Learning: Challenges and Opportunities" 
Host: Amany Alkhayat, Colombia Teachers College
Tower of Immersive Learning 1: Room 1

How can teachers adopt XR in teaching second language learning? How can professional development workshops help teachers decide on the right immersive learning tools in a classroom setting and beyond the classroom? Is there a need for a new pedagogical framework? This BOF will provide a platform for exploring and discussing best practices and success stories of using XR in second language learning. In this networking session, we'll explore resources, ideas, techniques, and best practices in immersive language learning.

Ideas for iLRN2022 &/or iLRN2023? Brainstorm!  
Host: Jonathon Richter; iLRN President/CEO
Tower of Immersive Learning 1: Room3

Should we continue this all online & in VR format next year for the conference? Perhaps we should host regional meetups at different times of year? Help iLRN continue innovating and fixing some of the problems. At this session, we'll brainstorm good ideas, BIG and small for how to improve the Immersive Learning Research Network conference. Coming to this BoF session definitely does NOT mean you have to join an organizing committee... but you might end up wanting to!

Pie and Coffee with Dr. Noah Glaser
in the iLRN Café on the iLRN Virtual Campus

link to discuss (the pie): 
http://noahglaser.com/portfolio/systematic-literature-review-of-virtual-reality-intervention-design-patterns-for-individuals-with-autism-spectrum-disorders/

The effectiveness of virtual reality (VR) for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has been discussed at length in the literature. Although researchers hypothesize that VR could be a highly effective training, therapeutic, and intervention modality, extant systematic literature reviews and meta analyses suggest only moderate effects. This mismatch between anticipated and actual effectiveness has been attributed to methodological limitations, including small sample sizes, limited use of control groups, and a lack of longitudinal research. However, absent in the discourse are considerations of how the design of VR technology might influence the effectiveness of interventions. Interrogating the question of technology design reveals substantial disparity in how researchers in this area conceive of and characterize VR as a whole, as well as how VR interventions for individuals with ASD are designed.
