About the speaker

Ken Cameron is a lecturer in the Visual Computing Group at The University of Bath. He moved from industry into academia five years ago. And in the process has become obsessed by the use of technology for learning and in particular the use of Virtual Reality for Training. Ken teaches full-time and doesn't do research. Instead, he gets the final-year and master's students he supervises to do it. Between them, they have constructed and experimented with a range of VR training applications covering both knowledge and skills-based learning. From these projects, we can build a picture of the benefits and pitfalls of moving training from the real world into the 'metaverse'.

Our events are for adults aged 16 years and over.
