OnEd Webinar: Potential of Virtual Reality in Higher Education

Virtual Reality (VR) has the potential to transform the way we learn and teach. However, to grasp its full potential impact on higher education, some pre-requisite knowledge about the technology is required and some very important questions must be answered. This presentation will provide a basic overview of the various VR technologies, present some key terms and definitions, offer some parameters and current exemplars of use in higher education, and provide a platform for discussion amongst colleagues.

Presented by: Dr. Don M. Leidl, RN BScNMN EdD

Dr. Leidl is a registered Nurse and Assistant Professor at the College of Nursing, University of Saskatchewan. His professional nursing practice is in acute inpatient psychiatric assessment and intervention and emergency department psychiatric intervention teams. His research portfolio is focused on the use of technology in nursing education and service delivery, most recently with a focus on virtual reality in clinical nursing education. Current research projects include work to create a sustainable evaluative framework for the College of Nursing distributed learning program and the use of 360┬░Virtual Reality Video to create immersive learning scenarios for nursing students and practicing clinicians in the mental health clinical environment.
