Enhancing the student learning experience through interactive virtual reality simulation

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A virtual simulation workshop took place at the University of Hertfordshire (UH) in
    2010 as part of a small project funded by the UH Learning and Teaching Institute.
    The project saw the development and implementation of an innovative virtual
    simulation package (virtual paramedic scene management software). The project
    was a joint venture combining teams from the School of Health and Emergency
    Professions (paramedic science) and the School of Computer Science (real-time
    3D team). Learning from simulation is already well established at UH through the
    Hertfordshire Intensive Care and Emergency Simulation Centre (Alinier, 2007).
    Together with existing education and training for clinical skills and patient
    assessment and management, it was envisaged that introducing virtual e-learning
    might complement those approaches. This brief report serves to share our
    experience with those who may be considering using virtual reality scenarios as a
    teaching/learning approach in the future.
