Augmented Reality (AR) technologies that mediate and enhance students’ perceptions of public spaces are fundamental to the sustainable expansion of experiential learning opportunities. By profiling AR content-creation processes and students’ course-based AR experiences, our installation engages Arts faculty with their potential use of AR technologies to transform public spaces within and beyond their courses. Bringing together faculty, staff and students from UBC’s Emerging Media Lab, UBC Studios, Department of Sociology, Department of Geography, and Vantage One, we showcase a pedagogical tool used by UBC instructors to develop immersive digital walking tours in Vancouver neighbourhoods in medium and large Arts courses.
