Empower your dreams of improving education
The Dreamery, located on the ground level of Shields Building, opened in December 2016 and serves as the de facto headquarters of TLT’s mission. In this one space students, faculty, and staff can use multiple new and emerging technologies like augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D printing, rapid prototyping with littleBits, and more. Whether a visitor is attending one of the dozens of workshops held annually in the Dreamery or visiting on their own time, there are ample opportunities to uncover how technology can help overcome higher education’s human hurdles.
During Spring 2018, the Dreamery hosted a customized internship. In the final semester of her senior year, Spenta Bamji researched and demonstrated virtual reality apps that could transform how anatomy and physiology courses are taught. Her experience at the Dreamery cemented her desire to pursue a career in anatomy education and illuminated the path she would take as a graduate student.
TLT’s staff is full of experts in creative learning, emerging media, faculty development, instructional design, and more. They’re able to provide robust support to any Penn State faculty, student, or staff member who wants to utilize the Dreamery to investigate how technology can transform education.
