Season 1, Episode 6 - Students Get “Real-life” Experience through Virtual Reality Simulation

Tra​ns​cript | Duration: 24:44


About This Episode:

Using virtual reality (VR), CSU Channel Islands nursing students learn beyond the boundaries of the traditional classroom. Dr. Jaime Hannans at California State University Channel Islands shares how students are able to rehearse and get feedback on their helping skills through VR simulations, and develop empathy through connecting with their virtual patients. San Diego State University’s Virtual Immersive Teaching and Learning (VITaL) promotes experimentation with curriculum design in unexpected majors by applying the scholarship of teaching and learning to these emerging technological tools.​
