Abstract

The next 10 years will see an increase in the adoption of 2D and 3D virtual environments as spaces for work-related interaction, collaboration and socialising. As the realities of the workplace become less time- and space-bound, it is important that graduates possess not only the skills to enable them to flourish in these environments, but also a deeper understanding of the implications of virtual realities for the questions of identity and selfhood. This paper will present a Monash University teaching initiative, the undergraduate subject BHS3000 Digital Selves. The subject’s content will be both theoretical and applied addressing questions such as: Who am I? Who am I interacting with? Where does the real life me end the virtual me begin? The initiative will be presented with a view to receiving feedback on the theoretical and practical aspects of the initiative and encouraging participation by staff and students from other internationally-focused higher education institutions.
