2016 NNC Horizon Report features CWRU active learning, HoloLens initiatives

Two Case Western Reserve projects, driven by Information Technology Services, are featured in the recently released 2016 edition of the New Media Consortium Horizon Report. The report charts the five-year horizon for the impact of emerging technologies in colleges and universities across the globe.

The Horizon Report first mentions the university’s Active Learning Initiative. According to the publication, CWRU has made "a significant investment toward changing its culture of teaching and learning with the development of state-of-the-art learning spaces and an active learning faculty fellowship program."

Also mentioned is Case Western Reserve’s collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic and Microsoft concerning HoloLens. Using HoloLens, the university will redesign how students learn anatomy. The Horizon Report states that "the curriculum will feature a library of 3D holographic human models that provide a systems-level perspective to anatomy that is nearly impossible for students to experience through traditional dissection or with 2D medical illustrations."
