Title: Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and the Future of Work: Are YOU Ready for the New Realities?

Description: Everyone is talking about workforce development and the need for more qualified employees. How can new technologies help? Consider how workers are trained. Conventional training is boring and time-consuming. New workers are used to learning in new ways and expect a lot more. How can employers meet those expectations and grow a qualified staff? VR and AR options, often first developed for gaming systems, are already making a big difference in real-world training methods. See how these new "realities" engage trainees to advance their skills faster, safer, and more effectively than traditional methods and make it easier to grow a qualified team.

Learning Objectives:
1. See examples of how VR and AR are used to make training more engaging, effective, and even fun.
2. Learn how this technology does already and will continue to affect the workforce.
3. Meet the developer of a Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality enhanced equipment training system and ask your questions!
