Why I Became: An XR Specialist

We are often asked this question very early in life: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” From astronauts to zoologists, we dream of becoming many things, but how many of us end up in a career we are truly passionate about? One lucky soul is Faisal Athar Mohd Fadzil, an XR Specialist at Taylor’s Virtual Online Future Technology and Extended Reality (VORTEX XR) Lab. How did a love for art and gaming lead him towards a career in Extended Reality (XR)? He joins us to share how and why he became an XR Specialist at the VORTEX XR Lab, which is part of Taylor's ongoing efforts to embed virtual, interactive, and immersive experiences in its teaching and learning. Faisal will also share how the learning centre identifies and defines teaching and learning needs through the creation of immersive educational content, and how they drive innovative XR research, ideas, and solutions as an XR Incubation Centre. 

Brought to you by Taylor's University. Rise with the best, where our community is our strength.
