DWP2020: Ethical Design in Immersive Media

Friday, August 7 at 10:00am to 11:00am

Virtual Event

As the power of augmented, virtual, and extended realities and the Spacial Web continues to grow, industry and the academy are also beginning to grapple with the ethical considerations that accompany that power. How often do the individuals who design these immersive experiences consider the potential consequences of both brief and prolonged use in these spaces? The extraordinary opportunity to both elevate and destroy rests in the hands of the content and experience creator. This panel brings together academics, journalists and industry professionals at the forefront of this field to discuss what we know and what we don’t know about the ethical considerations of immersive media.


Moderator: Daniel Pimentel, Assistant Professor of Media Psychology, University of Oregon
