As technology evolves, the advent of digital technologies has provided education practitioners opportunities to explore technology-enhanced teaching and learning. Imperial College Business School has become a pioneer in providing students with innovative, future-focused education programmes, developed through the School’s Edtech Lab. This proposed session will present a pilot use of holograms in delivering live lectures. The purposes of the study are to identify the strengths and potentials of holograms as an effective educational tool in higher education. Therefore, the primary research questions of the study focused on to address :1)what are the strengths and potentials of holograms in delivering live lectures in higher education context? 2)Does use of holograms enhance students’ engagement as result of strong ‘spatial presence’ ? 3)What are good practices for successful implementation of holograms in delivering live lectures across different locations. The pilot study findings will be shared at the session. The recommendations for the successful implementation of holograms in practice will be presented as well. I hope the session will encourage participants to open to emerging technology and embrace the potentials of the use of holograms in learning and teaching and help students be more prepared for the future.
