In this project we will adapt the successful LEARNZ Geohazard virtual fieldtrip (VFT) from the compulsory education sector to suit university field sciences. General criticisms of virtual learning include lack of community, slow feedback, and less motivated students. LEARNZ VFT’s are aligned with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, to specifically address these criticisms.
