This session will highlight how University of Miami faculty are exploring the application of Magic Leap within undergraduate and graduate courses. This session invites speakers at different stages of their experimentation with spatial computing to share their experiences, including representatives from the School of Architecture, College of Engineering, and School of Nursing and Health Studies. A series of three 10 minute presentations / demonstrations will shape this session, with time for Q&A.

12:45 - 1:00PM

Using Mixed Reality to Simulate Airway Fires within the Nurse Anesthesia Curriculum
While uncommon, improper use of electrosurgery devices can cause devastating airway fires and injury injuries to both patients and operating room staff. Physicians and allied health personnel are therefore required to prevent and respond quickly and appropriately to incidents. ‘Airway Fire’ is a Magic Leap experience built to visualize combustion in intubated surgical patients who might be receiving a high oxygen concentration in the presence of electrocautery devices used by surgeons to operate. Smoke, fire, and water particles are rendered directly onto mannequins located within the School of Nursing and Health Studies' Simulation Hospital for faculty and students to use. This mixed reality application allows students to role play scenarios in preventing and responding to airway fires. This presentation will demonstrate the use of the Magic Leap experience with an airway mannequin, in the context of a discussion of the use of mixed reality within our program. Contributors to this project included: Nicole Gomez, DNP, CRNA, Linda Wunder, PhD, CRNA and Shayne Hauglum, PhD, CRNA.

Spatial Computing In Architecture - A RAD Studio Based on the Magicverse Platform 
During the Spring 2019 semester, the School of Architecture launched its first studio course based on the Magicverse platform, led by Dean el-Khoury and co-taught by RAD Supervisor Christopher Chung, Amy DeDonato, Interaction Design Lead at Magic Leap and John Day, Technical Instructor at Magic Leap. Undergraduate and graduate students explored spatial and ubiquitous computing in their potential to change the ways we conceive, construct, inhabit and interact with our cities, buildings, and objects of everyday life. To envision how digital content would meaningfully enhance the physical environment, students engaged in research, design and prototyping of speculative ideas. This presentation will share our experience with using Magic Leap within architecture education, highlighting how the University of Miami’s campus served as a site for students to analyze and propose a design solution using spatial computation as a medium.

1:15 - 1.30PM
Diana Arboleda, College of Engineering
‘Vectors in Space’ - A Faculty-Student Collaboration to Visualize Vector Math using Magic Leap
This session will focus on sharing a work-in-progress from this year’s Faculty Learning Community on ‘Augmented Reality and Spatial Computing,’ being implemented within a current Fall 2019 course, Mechanics of Solids: Statics (CAE210). During the Spring and Summer 2019 semester, I partnered with with an undergraduate engineering student, Rachel de Paz, to prototype and visualize concepts including distributed forces and vector mathematics using a Magic Leap headset. Within Mechanics of Solids, or ‘Statics,’ students often struggle with core mathematical foundations around vector components so the first two weeks include a math refresher period, with a large portion spent on vectors. As students often experience difficulty visualizing vectors in 3D, ‘Vectors In Space’ was designed as a mixed reality application that allows the professor and students to draw and manipulate vectors in a real space. This presentation will share my experience in using the Magic Leap experience within a class, and my experience.
