CHI’22 Workshop VR (WE ARE) TRAINING
25 April 2022
Collaborative Virtual training for challenging training situations
Shotpros partners are organising a workshop and launch a call for papers on this topic.
Virtual reality provides great opportunities to simulate various environments and situations as reproducible and controllable training environments. Training is an inherently collaborative effort, with trainees and trainers working together to achieve specific goals.
Recently, we have seen considerable effort to use virtual training environments (VTEs) in many demanding training contexts, e.g. first responder training. For such contexts, trainers and trainees must undertake various roles as supervisors, adaptors, role players, and observers in training, making collaboration complex, but essential for training success. These social and multi-user aspects for collaborative VTEs have received little investigation so far.
In this workshop we want to discuss potential and perspectives of VTEs for computer-supported special work-related training settings. In a one-day online workshop, researchers and practitioners will jointly develop a research agenda on how currently underrepresented aspects of social and collaborative work can be integrated into VR-supported training.
The overarching goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines and backgrounds to jointly develop a research agenda on how currently underrepresented aspects of social and collaborative work can be integrated into VR-supported training. Therefore, we aim include a broad range of participants from various fields, with perspectives from e.g. work psychology, HCI and user experience experts, end-user organizations, VR developers, and trainers.
The workshop will result in two main outcomes:
- Participants’ submissions (position statements or motivation/speculation statement) will be published online through the workshop webpage and submitted to a preprint server (e.g. arXiv)
- The workshop will result in a joint research agenda and declaration statement that will be released via the website. We will strive for publishing this research agenda and position statement in a peer-reviewed journal.
We will select participants based on the potential contribution they can offer to the workshop agenda. To lower the barrier for participants from non-scientific organizations (e.g. end-user partners and practitioners) we will open the workshop to two forms of contribution.
