Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Using virtual learning technologies for workforce development

How can we harness virtual learning technologies to address the competency development needs of the modern and future biomedical workforce? Virtual learning tools, e.g. immersive learning simulations and serious games, offer tremendous possibilities for creating engaging and compelling learning experiences for biomedical scientists and providing them with opportunities to practice research skills within the context of realistic challenges. Through meaningful contextualization, virtual learning environments offer exceptional potential for teaching cognitive and behavioral skills that are of critical importance for the workforce, particularly as it relates to teamwork, project management, ethical research, and inter-disciplinary collaboration
