Prof. Dr. Bettina Maisch: From second life to second job

Go back

Prof. Dr. Bettina Maisch is Professor of Entrepreneurship at Munich University of Applied Sciences and Head of Digital Education at the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship (SCE). In this video interview, he answers questions about virtual collaboration and his joint contribution with Andres Rueda: "From Second Life to Second Job: Creativity and Entrepreneurship Education in the Metaverse" - to be read in the publication:
Kreulich, Klaus & Matern, Sibylle (Eds.) (2023). Teaching and Learning in Virtual Space. Bielefeld: wbv Publication. doi. org/10.3278/9783763974191

She describes the advantages of virtual learning and teaching as follows:

"[...] These are the possibilities for virtual collaboration, that we have something that provides added value between the current 2D representation of collaboration or pure text-based collaboration. Suddenly we are in a space that isn´t subject to the usual constrictions of reality. The rest is our imagination and a bit of technical development - what we make of it. "

The new anthology "Teaching and Learning in Virtual Space", edited by Sibylle Matern and HM Vice President for Teaching Klaus Kreulich (ed.), offers insights into current research and innovative approaches to the use of virtual reality in education. The authors from Munich University of Applied Sciences examine how the learning behavior of individuals and groups changes when using immersive media, what skills the actors need and what opportunities virtual technologies offer in the university context and in the world of work. Lecturers from the SCE, Entrepreneurship Center at HM, are also represented with contributions from the authors Audrey Stolze, Bettina Maisch and Andres Rueda. More information
