New simulation and immersive technologies resources now available

360 VR Film Creation

Health Education England’s (HEE) Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team has published 2 new resources to support colleagues working in simulation and immersive technologies.

How to Develop a Virtual Reality (VR) 360 Degree Film – Part One has been written by Nick Peres, Immersive Technologies Advisor, and gives detailed instructions to learners focusing on technique, camera positioning, sound and directing a scene.

The second part of this simulation toolkit, which focuses on post-production, will be available soon.

The Faculty Development Guidance is part of HEE TEL’s national toolkit to support the use of simulation in health and care. The comprehensive guide, which was developed with support from Simulation Reference Task and Finish group members, offers recommendations for organisations to run an effective and credible simulation faculty to ensure faculty members are trained and supported to deliver high quality simulation-based education.

The document includes a range of case studies and highlights examples of good practice with advice on:

  • providing educational rigour
  • providing appropriate support and training to enable continuous faculty development
  • enabling a supportive and sustainable environment
  • collaborating and sharing best practice
