Zoom Workshops on using new VR equipment

January 21, 2021 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

The Center for Innovative Learning and Teaching welcomes you to the 4th Wave of Computer Technology.
The future has arrived to meet your presentation and teaching needs with new technology and simulation.

We have recently purchased two new 360 degree cameras in order to create videos in Virtual Reality.
As well, we have purchased 200 Google Glasses so students can view 360 videos. These are glasses are low cost devices that students connect to their
cell phones for viewing.

We would like to encourage TUC faculty and staff to consider using this new equipment to provide students with Virtual Reality experiences.

These video cameras can be used to:  film demonstrations using Standardized Patients or students (eg. how to do a knee exam;how to suture; how to aspirate a joint; how to take a history; cadaver dissection; treatment in the OMM lab; and how to compound various drugs/medicines [to name just a few]); simulations using some of our simulation equipment (eg. how to intubate, how to start an IV, how to deal with a Code Blue, treating a COVID patients); and/or course lectures or discussions (students will feel like they are sitting right inside your classroom).

Will be providing interested faculty and staff with workshops on the use of VR, providing you with several examples of how this technology has been successfully used with medical students, nursing students, PAs, and others in classrooms, hospitals, laboratories, clinics, simulation centers, and other venues.

Jim O’Connor is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meetings.

No need to preregister

We are asking faculty or staff to submit proposals for the use of this technology, so we can begin utilizing our new equipment and scheduling times for filming.

This new equipment is housed both in the Video Recording Studio (Jeff Reedy), and the Simulation Center (Aaron McMath).

However,it is portable and can be used in any venue (classrooms, labs, simulation centers, clinics,hospitals,  etc.)

We are encouraging faculty and staff to collaborate with one another, in particular, across TUC programs and colleges. However, this is not a requirement. Also, consider working with faculty from other TCUS campuses.

There may be some limited funds available for use of equipment or simulated patients.

Proposals can be submitted at any time, there is no deadline.

Please contact me for any questions, and be sure to attend one of the upcoming workshops.
As well, I am happy to meet with you one-on-one, or in small groups beyond the workshops.

Come and see what we can do for you. Bring your needs, ideas and creativity to this astonishing future.

Experience, actual, simulated or virtual, is the bridge from having information to the ownership of knowledge.

This is the 4th Wave of Computer Technology! The future is now!
