Immersive technologies (XR) such as virtual reality (VR) present new pedagogical opportunities. These opportunities include: vivid, engaging, and realistic learning experiences; immersion into inaccessible spaces and eras; stronger emotional attachment to topics and increased social empathy; critical thinking in experiential learning situations; high-impact practices. There is considerable CSU interest in immersive technologies, with XR initiatives emerging at Channel Island, Northridge, San Diego State, Sonoma State, and other campuses. Within the CSU system, CSUSB is the recognized leader in VR production thanks to an organic partnership between faculty, students and ITS personnel. This presentation introduces the pedagogical vision for VR content creation at CSUSB and our current VR production. Our team of faculty and ITS staff innovators will discuss the pedagogical principles that informed our initiatives, the student and faculty-led production model, our current projects, and the challenges of making this model workable, sustainable and accessible. We conclude with an agenda for future directions for VR content development and research.
