Knowledge Gained through ISL

A Range of Repeatable Learning Opportunities

Immersive and simulation learning offers intense experiences that are difficult to obtain in real life. Learners can address multiple different aspects of cognitive and psychomotor skills, including knowledge, tasks, decision-making, and teamwork. They can train for a variety of patient care activities ranging from prevention to surgery. And because any situation can be portrayed at will, these events can be scheduled whenever convenient and repeated as often as necessary.

The Freedom to Make Mistakes and Learn from Them

Working in an artificial environment allows learners to make mistakes without the need for expert intervention. By seeing the outcome of their mistakes, students gain a powerful learning experience not available in the real world.

The Ability to Scale in Complexity to Match the Learner's Experience

Programmable to any level of expertise, an immersive learning event can accommodate a range of learners, from first-year medical students to seasoned clinicians looking to learn new techniques or review a rare scenario.

Detailed Feedback and Evaluation

Immersive learning allows participants to obtain extensive feedback on their performances. Simulated clinical scenarios can be video recorded and played back during debriefing sessions, so that learners and instructors can review participant performance together. Video playback can serve as an effective trigger for discussion of learning objectives and allows for evaluation of key behaviors.
