Special Track on Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access and Social Justice (IDEAS) in XR environments

----------
Overview
----------
The Special Track on Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access and Social justice (IDEAS) at the iLRN 2020 Conference will focus on XR environments’ use, implementation and design with historically disadvantaged, systemically oppressed and underrepresented populations. These groups include women, people with disabilities, racial and ethnic minorities, culturally and linguistically diverse groups, older adults, LGBTQ+, or people from low-middle income countries or low-resource/rural areas.

This Special Track will prioritize proposals which emphasize social justice, as well as the equitable participation and inclusion of disempowered, vulnerable and low- resource populations in all phases of research, development, use, and evaluation of immersive technologies.

This special track will consider the following types of proposals: a) empirical and emergent research; b) Immersive software and hardware design; and c) technical, pedagogical, and theoretical frameworks and workflow processes.

----------
List of Topics
----------
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Equitable participation and inclusion of different groups into research, creation, design, implementation, and evaluation of immersive environments
Requirements and skills for instructional design in immersive learning environments
Future vision on technology applications to support representation of these groups
Barriers to accessibility of immersive equipment and software for different populations
Research on design decisions of immersive technologies and their impact on outcomes
Critical and other research methodologies in immersive learning research
Adoption and diffusion of immersive technologies by members of different populations
Ethical instructor and researcher decisions with immersive technologies and environments
Advance the use of immersive technologies to reduce barriers or increase equity.
