The Social Work program is teaming up with the College of Education to provide Master in Social Work students an opportunity to counsel teenagers with addicted parents in a simulated environment using Mursion
Mursion@ECU gave out “grants” to school districts to use up to 25 hours of Mursion for professional development purposes during the 2017-18 school year. APPLICATIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR THE 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR. Click this image to download your application.
Michael Daniels from the School of Social Work in the College of Health and Human Performance work with Mursion Coordinators Christine Wilson and Holly Fales to develop a new scenario to use in his social work and substance abuse classes.
English Education Candidate, Makenzie Evans, teaches a lesson on symbolism to the Mursion class during a recent visit by Vice Chancellor for Research, Dr. Jay Golden.
Project INTERSECT (Interactive STEM Education Competence in Teaching), a a $599,939 NSF grant, will address the nature and role of discipline-specific discourse in the classroom. The goal of the project is to explore how training with immersive classroom simulation activities affect the ability of ECU math and science teacher candidates use of discourse as a means of instruction.
Mursion’s unique blend of virtual reality technology and live human
performance creates powerful and immersive learning simulations.
Research suggests that this is the most powerful model for simulating
authentic interpersonal exchanges.
Virtual medical examination room - used for single patient interactions or dual patient scenarios. There are a combination of child and adult avatars in this environment, which is helpful for pediatric scenarios.
The use of standardized patients (SPs) to provide medical trainees with realistic simulations of patient interactions has become an indispensable tool of medical education and assessment.
For hard-to-cast populations, such as pediatrics, SP training has been nearly impossible to effectively implement. Mursion's virtual standardized patient (VSP)simulators offer medical educators a powerful new tool to improve a blend of technical and interpersonal skills, such as:
The avatars used with this scene can be the ones shown in the picture as well as the ones shown in the pictures below. Other combinations are not available.
