In this episode of The Virti XR Training Podcast, Nick speaks to Verity McIntosh about teaching and encouraging new talent in the field of Virtual and Extended Reality. We also talk about the affordances of VR for remote connectivity, virtual conferences and the importance of exploration and interdisciplinary working.
Verity is a Senior Lecturer for Virtual and Extended Realities & Programme Lead for MA Virtual Reality at UWE Bristol, which is an industry-led practice-based master’s programme (looking at VR, AR, MR and 360) with a focus on critical interrogation in this emerging field.
Verity was previously Managing Producer at Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio, a pioneering multidisciplinary research space and also has an established reputation as a creative producer.
Verity advocates interdisciplinary storytelling that bridges physical and virtual worlds and argues for a more considered and inclusive approach to audience care in VR experiences.
