Schleif's recent work has included opening the Geese Book: "A multisensory work of the past is explored through multimedia technologies of the present. A team of experts headed by Volker Schier and Corine Schleif opens the Geese Book to scholars and provides a window for broader audiences."[4] She and Schier also developed a Virtual reality (VR) experience called Extraordinary Sensescapes: The Sensual World of Late Medieval Nuns.[5]
