Learning in virtual health environments

Interprofessional student team in full-scale simulation

The overarching aim of this project is to generate and integrate knowledge of how IT can support learning across different virtual environments (visualisation, virtual patients and simulation) within healthcare education and practice.

The project comprise three substudies:

The first substudy focuses on how interprofessional learning and collaborative problem-solving be supported with computerised virtual patients.

Substudy two investigates the pre-clinical and clinical parts of healthcare education be bridged through the use of visualisation of the human biomedical musculoskeletal system.

The third substudy explores how instruction be designed to promote interprofessional learning in and through full-scale simulations.


The three-year project 2017-2019 is funded by Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg Foundation.
