I have taught studio and lecture classes in Virginia Tech and Arizona State University. I enjoy bringing my research into the classroom and introduce students to the most recent technological breakthroughs in haptics, virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality. Please click on the links below to learn more about the structure of these classes and see images/videos of the classes and student projects.

Discovery Studio I

Transdisciplinary Fusion Studio I

This studio course focuses on collaborative problem-setting. Students evaluate technology innovation based on four criteria: feasibility (can it be made?), viability (is it financially sensible?), desirability (do people want it?), and sustainability (can it work long-term?). This course is an introduction to design thinking, system thinking. Also, introduces ethical dimensions of collaborative technology innovation for societal impact.
