Presentation Abstract:

In this webinar Dr. Todd Maddox, PhD will discuss the promise of virtual reality (VR) as an effective education and training tool in healthcare. He will review the neurobiology of learning and performance and show that VR broadly engages multiple learning and performance systems in the brain in synchrony. This “spreads the wealth” of educational and training opportunities across the brain while simultaneously “reducing the burden” on cognitive processing systems in the brain. He argues that traditional approaches to healthcare education and training are sub-optimal because they target almost exclusively cognitive learning and performance systems in the brain, whereas VR targets a broad and comprehensive array of learning and performance systems in the brain. Finally, Dr. Maddox discusses how virtual reality can serve as a complement to healthcare simulation training.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the problems in healthcare education and training.
  2. Identify the learning centers in the brain.
  3. Explain the benefits of virtual reality for healthcare learning.
