Preparing College Students for the Workforce

In this AVI-SPL post for No Jitter, you’ll learn about the technology and skills that businesses will value in the years ahead and what that means for higher education. Universities that want to retain prestige and enrollment figures should give their students hands-on experience with the technology solutions that prepare them for success in their career fields.

That experience can come in the form of solutions like advanced visualization and simulation that train learners in safe environments for medical care. Higher education institutions can also help students understand how to use video collaboration systems and how to work productively with colleagues and clients.

This article looks at the public-private partnerships and funding opportunities that can make collaborative solutions part of your school’s core resources.

Webinar: Preparing Students for the Workforce

Digital disruptions mean new categories of jobs will emerge, and those jobs will require new skillsets. How can colleges and universities ensure they outfit students with the skills and experience they require for the new world of work?

Join us September 26 at 11 am PT/ 2 pm ET as we examine how technology tools that allow students to work alongside professionals — both virtually and physically — can enable students to graduate more prepared for high-demand fields. Our featured speakers will explore:

  • How educational organizations can integrate advanced, secure, effective AV and collaboration solutions to connect students to the resources and technologies they need to prepare for successful careers.
  • Top tools for workplace readiness, such as interactive displays and huddle rooms, virtual reality, augmented reality and simulation, and how some top universities are using them.
  • How universities can leverage industry collaborations to get the tech tools they need.

During this webinar, Todd Bergum of Vaddio discusses the latest products that record and stream classroom lectures. In this context, he looks at Vaddio solutions for multi-site control of classroom cameras from a central location, and makes the case that AV technology systems need to be simple and easy for everyone to use. Topics include:

  • Trends in technology, including the needs of students, teachers, and the IT department with regard to classroom technology
  • Using AV systems with apps that are used in the classroom
  • Vaddio’s AV Bridge products (including the Matrix PRO)

The Value of Managed Services to Higher Education

Systems Contractor News looks at the value integrators provide to higher education, which continues to invest in video collaboration solutions. The article looks at the advances being made in video walls and in placing collaboration platforms on a network.

It also looks at the importance of collecting data to see which rooms and equipment are being used, and how often. That leads to a highlight of AVI-SPL and its ability to collect and analyze such data . Jeff Van Horn, sales and engineering manager, talks about AVI-SPL’s managed services and why it matters.

Reinventing Medical Education With Advanced Visualization

In anticipation of the official November 2018 opening of the Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning at the University of Nebraska, I’m sharing a few articles that have been written about the school’s Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL), which will operate out of the facility. The interprofessional center is meant to improve healthcare by enabling learners to train in a hands-on, safe environment using visualization and simulation technology.

AVI-SPL is the integrator for this project, and playing such an important role continues to be a great source of pride and an example of what is possible with the kinds of technology in which AVI-SPL specializes.

Recent articles about technology in healthcare education have looked at iEXCEL and its mission to reshape the delivery of healthcare education.

In a second post this week, I’ll share a video that the University of Nebraska has created to share its excitement over this program.
