In the context of the European project VRTEACHER – Virtual Reality-based Training to improvE digital Competences of TEACHERS (Grant Agreement: 2020-1-CY01-KA226-SCH-082707) training activities were organized by all partner countries (Cyprus, Spain, Greece, Ireland and Malta) between December 2022 and January 2023. Over 300 in-service and pre-service teachers participated in the educational activities and had the opportunity to be trained in issues related to the use of virtual reality in education as well as to use the virtual reality pilot application created in the context of the VRTEACHER project by the Cyprus University of Technology in collaboration with the Carlos III University of Madrid.

The educational activities were divided into three phases: initially, an online lecture was organized where the VRTEACHER project was presented to teachers and an introduction was made regarding the use of Virtual Reality in education. Afterwards, the participants had face-to-face training sessions during which they used the VRTEACHER application and provided feedback on their experience. Finally, the last online meeting with the teachers who took part in the process followed, to reflect on the experience and exchange opinions about the use of Virtual Reality in teacher training.

The partnership would like to sincerely thank the participants for their interest and participation, the time they devoted to all the activities that took place and the valuable comments and thoughts they shared with us.

The VRTEACHER program involves six partners from five countries: Cyprus University of Technology (Cyprus), Aegean University (Greece), University Carlos III of Madrid (Spain), Fundación Siglo22 (Spain), Future In Perspective Limited (Ireland), and Commonwealth Center for Connected Learning (Malta). The coordinator of the project is the Social Informatics Research Unit, through the Visual Media Computing Lab of the Department of Multimedia and Graphic Arts of the Cyprus University of Technology.
