Jeff Gordon

Professor in Educational Informatics
Vanderbilt University

Between public safety and a challenging economic climate, affordably scaling a training program is nearly impossible - especially in a clinical setting. However, state by state, the use of simulation in prelicensure nursing education is becoming a modern staple of training strategies in healthcare, and it could become the norm in your industry too. 
Presented by some of the earliest pioneers in VR training, Jeff Gordon, Professor in Educational Informatics at Vanderbilt University, and John Blackmon, CTO of eLearning Brothers, will share how Vanderbilt University affordably and safely trained a growing population of nurse practitioner students when purchasing more ultrasound machines for $100,000 each simply wasn’t an option. 
Together, they will demonstrate how a virtual reality application prepared nurse practitioner students to operate and interpret ultrasound technology with increased efficiency, safety, and knowledge, without jeopardizing patient outcomes. 
Highlights of the session include:
• The design process for interactive VR scenarios
• Appropriate filming techniques and technologies used
• The actual process for creating an immersive scenario from raw footage
If you are in an industry that involves any type of hands-on training, you won’t want to miss out on techniques that could work for you too.
