Research project VR/AR in vocational education and training
On 15 and 16 October 2019, TriCAT and the other consortium partners of the ViTAWiN research project met at the Johanniter Academy in Hanover. In this consortium meeting, the first phase of the project was completed and the next phase initiated, in which the first technical implementations are carried out by the development partners.
The meeting was characterized by many innovative ideas with regard to the future trainable medical setting.
In ViTAWiN an interdisciplinary consortium develops, tests and evaluates a multi-user Virtual Reality (VR)- / Augmented Reality (AR)-Simulation Environment. The project addresses the educational needs of instructors and learners in training to become emergency paramedics and further training in emergency care.
The research project ViTAWiN – Virtual augmented training for education and training in interprofessional emergency care – is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research within the Program Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) in Vocational Education and Training (VRARBB).
