Higher Education Technologies and Workforce Success

At the AVI-SPL page “Strategies for Improving Student Success When They Join the Workforce,” you’ll learn about the kind of technology solutions that can help prepare students for their careers. You’ll also find links to resources that offer ideas for using display technology in higher education (including ambitious deployments led by AVI-SPL). Other topics at this page include:

  • Why public-private partnerships work
  • How to prepare students for tomorrow’s workforce
  • Ways to close the soft-skills gap (companies expect employees to have skills like resiliency and the ability to work in teams).

Video Explores the iEXCEL at University of Nebraska Medical Center

Yesterday I shared a series of articles about the University of Nebraska’s ambitious project to improve the quality of healthcare education through simulation and advanced visualization technology. Today, take a look at this video that explores the university’s forthcoming Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL) and its home, the Davis Global Center. You’ll see and hear about:

  • The different medical practitioners who will train and learn using iEXCEL technology
  • Design engineers who will work with doctors to create
  • Huddle and collaboration spaces and the holographic theater
  • The Davis Global Center’s ability to reach learners around the world
  • Surgical labs and patient simulators

You’ll also get a quick peek at the visualization labs, including a five-sided laser immersive space, curved 3D CAD wall, and iEXCEL Helix.

AVI-SPL is the integrator for this project, with a track record of successful visualization technology integrations for other schools. Call us at 866-559-8197 or sales@avispl.com.

 

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.

At EDUCAUSE This Week? See AVI-SPL’s Advanced Viz Display

If you’re an educator interested in learning about the newest technology, you or your colleagues have good reason to be at this week’s EDUCAUSE Annual Conference, the premier event for IT professionals and technology providers in higher education. The conference’s exhibition, which is Nov. 1 – 2 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philly, creates networking opportunities for colleagues to talk bout their strategies, programs, what’s working, and what isn’t.

When you visit AVI-SPL at booth #2301, you’ll see a Barco cave display we’ve set up for guests, and you’ll learn about advanced visualization and how the technology is being used in higher ed.

About Cave Displays (taken from the Barco Cave Displays page)

A cave display is a multi-sided immersive environment that offers great levels of immersion. Barco cave displays can have any number of sides, ranging from two to six, in any size you want. Furthermore, caves are completely customizable to your specific demands, and can be a fixed or transportable installation with rigid or flexible screens, high or lower resolutions, with active or passive 3D, or even both.

In this map of the exhibitor floor plan, you’ll find AVI-SPL at the bottom left. We’ve got friendly faces there who want to talk to you, demonstrate our value to higher ed, and leave you with a good impression about trusting your project to AVI-SPL.

At the EDUCAUSE event website, you can register to attend. Amidst the mass of people and rows of booths, we’ll make you feel welcome. See you there.
