Developing Compassion as a 21st Century Skill in Immersive VR

Description

Incorporating compassion and empathy in metaversive learning can be an effective strategy for increasing the retention of discipline-specific lessons in immersive XR learning environments. Morehouse College is exploring the use of emotive experiences to increase student engagement in their Metaversity. By integrating virtual reality simulations, storytelling, and perspective-taking exercises, students are able to connect with the learning material on a deeper, emotional level.

Virtual reality simulations allow students to experience real-world scenarios that demonstrate the importance of the lesson in a more tangible way. The storytelling aspect engages students' emotions and helps them to retain the material better. Perspective-taking exercises encourage students to think outside of their own perspective and see issues from multiple angles, fostering empathy and understanding. These emotive experiences have resulted in increased student engagement and a deeper understanding of the material, which can be applied in real-world settings.

Morehouse College's approach to incorporating emotive experiences in their Metaversity has the potential to improve student outcomes and better prepare them for future success. Take a walk around their digital twin campus, journey back in time on the La Amistad slave ship and World War II, and discover life of others from the lens of storytelling.

Description

Clinical training has advanced over the years, and now with the adoption of technology we are able to accelerate human capability via precision simulation using virtual reality (VR) and as a result, advance pre-human competence in surgery and additional clinical environments to improve patient outcomes.

Haptic technology enables users to develop the knowledge of how it feels to perform a procedure correctly or incorrectly – helping to build muscle memory that is particularly important in advanced and precise surgical environments.

This session will discuss the value of Immersive VR and haptic technology environments and experiences that facilitate skills development and transfer, allowing medical device manufacturers to improve access and accelerate procedure and product adoption.

The session will cover the growing body of scientific evidence which demonstrates the value of VR vs. traditional training across various specialties. It will also provide real life case study examples of companies that implemented immersive VR training successfully and showed improvement in patient care while demonstrating significant ROI.

Description

Tabletop exercises can be applied across multiple industries to conduct performance assessments, construction planning, scenario-based training, walkdowns, and other applications. In nuclear and radiological security, the importance of conducting tabletop exercises is an utmost priority. It provides the opportunity to train responders in high consequence low occurrence scenarios.

While our use case is specific to a radiological theft, it is applicable across multiple industries. Coupling augmented reality with a tabletop exercise has proven to be a highly collaborative and more effective than conventional methods. AR headsets provide the capability to perform three-dimensional tabletop exercises in which multiple stakeholders can gather to complete an objective. This gathering can be conducted at a distance saving money, time, and resources.

In this session, we will demonstrate the use of AR in a response tabletop exercise and discuss the benefits of using AR tabletop exercises across industry.
