Re-visioning interprofessional education in virtual worlds
Apr 5 @ 04:00 PM – 04:50 PM

Presenters: Susan Toth-Cohen (SL: Zsuzsa Tomsen), Thomas Jefferson University; Anne C. Smith (SL: Annemaree Michigan), Five Sparrows Counseling and Educational Services.
Description: From their inception, virtual worlds have attracted educators from many disciplines, and benefits for both students and educators for networking and immersive experience have been well documented. But, while virtual world education has engaged multiple disciplines to learn with, from, and about each other, the potential for significant innovation in interprofessional education (IPE) has not been fully realized. This presentation outlines ways to re-vision and implement IPE in virtual worlds.

Participants will be able to describe ways to re-vision and implement IPE in virtual worlds
Participants will be able to discuss the utility of the flexible learning model for virtual training
