Developing Interactive Virtual Simulations Workshop (Online)

Offered in partnership with professors Paula Mastrilli (George Brown College) and Margaret Verkuyl (Centennial College) and the Virtual Simulation Community of Learning, we are excited to offer their highly-acclaimed virtual workshop on virtual simulations!

Join us in a two-day, hands-on workshop where you will learn a step-by-step process for creating realistic and engaging experiential learning opportunities using a range of available resources and software to suit your budget. Virtual simulations provide learners with an opportunity to apply their knowledge and problem-solving skills in realistic workplace situations. Have we piqued your interest? Experience a virtual simulation sample and imagine the possibilities!
