Our international team of researchers from the US, Finland, Germany, Israel, and Turkey will develop a unified interdisciplinary research agenda focused on how immersive extended reality (XR) systems such as virtual, augmented, and mixed reality can be used to understand, measure, train, teach, and learn about self-regulation across human and artificial teachers and learners in STEM. Our project will lead an innovative and risk-taking research agenda addressing 21st century educational challenges and major international issues for preparing the workforce and fostering life-long learning skills. Our proposal facilitates sharing different expertise across multiple countries utilizing the convenience and accessibility of XR. This is critical as the ubiquity of XR for teachers and instructional training are likely to increase underrepresented groups’ participation in STEM fields.
