WPU focuses on Immersive Learning, which means learning by doing. We believe this prepares our students for careers and organizations of tomorrow. With sessions outdoors and off-campus to field trips, you’ll become more ready for your career. Immersive Learning also means studying abroad, conducting research, and participating in an annual showcase of their work.
Here at William Peace University, we really focus on this concept of immersive learning. Doing, using your hands, not just your mind. Not just listening to lectures.
For students in my class, that could involve physically looking at fossils that talk about human evolution, or actually doing tests that could help explain what type of genetic alleles you have in your body.
In the Communication Program, we actually use different types of microphones, different types of cameras, and we see what the differences are and how the brain of the camera thinks and what it needs to create the look and feel that we want.
In our Simulation Game Design Department. We have a bunch of different projects that get the students out of the seats. They get the students working with hardware and software, we have a Simulation Game Design Lab with high-end computers for game development. At the back of that lab is our motion capture studio for Animation and Game Design integration. One of our newest labs is our Esports Lab that has high-end computers and monitors for the use of competitive Esports playing. We're constantly looking to update and improve our curriculums to add new majors.
I'm constantly looking into research that's ongoing, especially when we think about genetics, and I'm constantly trying to get new fossil materials so that we can continue to explore as new discoveries occur.
We make sure that the software and all the tools that they have helps them prepare for that transition from May of graduation, to June of full employment. That is our mission here preparing our students for careers and organizations of tomorrow. And it starts right here in the classroom.
