SimTecT Welcoming Students in 2016

SimTecT Welcoming Students in 2016 | SimulationWeek | Scoop.it

Submitted by Nicole Jones de Rooy for SimulationWeek

Welcoming students and junior researchers from science, technology, engineering and maths into the modelling and simulation community is vital for the future. As many of you will agree, sharing knowledge and having the opportunity to network, provides reciprocal long term benefits for individuals and communities that participate. The play on the STEM acronym signifies the vision to ‘grow’ our student and junior researcher presentation numbers and audience. The 2016 SimTecT team has advocated on behalf of students and junior researchers to make attending Australasian Simulation Congress more affordable and has invited students and junior researchers to participate in a Best Student Poster competition with a prestigious award of $2000.  We look forward to meeting both students and junior researchers in Melbourne in September 2016.

Asia Pacific Serious Games Showcase and Challenge 2016

Asia Pacific Serious Games Showcase and Challenge 2016 | SimulationWeek | Scoop.it

Submitted by the Asia Pacific Simulation Alliance for SimulationWeek

 

The Asia Pacific Simulation Alliance is delighted to launch the virtual Asia Pacific Serious Games Showcase and Challenge which seeks to expand the general exposure and understanding of game-based training solutions and to promote the Asia Pacific capability internationally. This inaugural Challenge targets Windows PC and mobile platform game based solutions designed for users in secondary education or higher.

 

The Asia Pacific Serious Games Showcase and Challenge is partnering to expand the international reach for the International Serious Games Showcase & Challenge, SGSC, hosted annually by the National Training and Simulation Association in connection with the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, Florida during early December 2016.

 

The Asia Pacific Challenge will use the International Challenge Official Rules to enable our winning finalists to be hosted and present their game in Orlando.

Live Texturing of Augmented Reality Characters from Colored Drawings

Coloring books capture the imagination of children and provide them with one of their earliest opportunities for creative expression. However, given the proliferation and popularity of digital devices, real-world activities like coloring can seem unexciting, and children become less engaged in them. Augmented reality holds unique potential to impact this situation by providing a bridge between real-world activities and digital enhancements. In the paper, an augmented reality coloring book App is presented in which children color characters in a printed coloring book and inspect their work using a mobile device. The drawing is detected and tracked, and the video stream is augmented with an animated 3-D version of the character that is textured according to the child’s coloring. They present a texturing process that applies the captured texture from a 2-D colored drawing to both the visible and occluded regions of a 3-D character in real time.

“Looking through others eyes to learn”

 

Train the trainer for academics using VR technology in preparation for e-simulations with 1st year nursing students at Monash University. Nursing and Midwifery students will view the e-simulation either via VR technology or anaglyph glasses followed by a comprehensive debrief and reflection activity. Lecturers add detail during the e-simulation by use of smell (fish sauce) and touch (BP) to increase student immersion and engagement.

Mater Education Celebrates SimulationWeek

Mater Education Celebrates SimulationWeek | SimulationWeek | Scoop.it

Submitted by Mated Education for SimulationWeek

 

This week Mater Education celebrates SimulationWeek, an online event run by Simulation Australasia from 2 to 8 May, to promote the many forms of simulation and celebrate its growing importance within education and training.  

 

Melanie Barlow, Mater Education Programs Manager and Deputy Chair of the Australian Society of Simulation in Healthcare, said simulation training allows clinicians from all levels and disciplines to continuously improve patient care delivery and outcomes by practicing and refining their technical  skills, communication and team cohesiveness in a safe learning environment.

 

“Here at Mater Education, we’re lucky to have access to world-class clinical simulation facilities like the Mater Education Practice Improvement Centre (MEPIC), where healthcare students and clinicians can safely practice challenging aspects of patient care, using either computer-controlled mannequins or trained actors as patients”, Ms Barlow said. “

 

We deliver a range of simulation programs where students and clinicians can practice complex clinical scenarios that encourage high levels of clinical competence, critical thinking, teamwork and quality decision-making.

 

“In October 2015 we developed and delivered a 24 hour simulated hospital scenario, in preparation for the opening of Mater Private Hospital Springfield. This simulation event, with community volunteers acting as patients, was the first of its kind, and positioned Mater at the forefront of using simulation in staff education and facility testing,” she said.

 

Ms Barlow also said Mater launched its inaugural Simulation Fellowship program in 2016, designed to strengthen the use of innovative simulation training at Mater.

 

“Our first Simulation Fellows, Dr Dominic Ormston (Anaesthetics) and Dr Richard Mausling (Newborn Services) will complete a formal simulation qualification through the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions, and will each develop a series of simulation-based training programs for their respective departments, to help keep Mater clinicians at the leading edge of their practice”, she said. 

 

In 2014 Mater Education formalised an Affiliate Partnership with the world renowned Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) in Boston, USA. The partnership sees Mater Education co-deliver highly sort-after CMS courses for clinicians and educators interested in developing their knowledge and skills in using Simulation as a Teaching Tool and Advanced Debriefing.

 

A limited number of places are now available in the next CMS Simulation as a Teaching Tool course, to be held from 23 to 26 August 2016.

The volunteer simulated patient program at Northern Health is proving to be very successful. This is based on a program established by the allied health team in 2014, and reported at SimHealth in 2015.

This year, other departments and our partner universities have become involved too. Medical students from the University of Melbourne, nursing and physio students (pictured) from La Trobe University and members of the NH Emergency Department have all used volunteers from our simulated patient pool to enhance their learning events.
