Early September I spent an afternoon in the auditorium of the Technical University Eindhoven, The Netherlands to listen to the PhD defense of Sophie Truijens. As I already announced in the blog about simulation-based training, Sophie will tell us more about her study, and share her insights with us in this blog post.
A few weeks ago I posted a blog about observation and usability labs. But that isn’t the only way to observe in a laboratory setting – our systems are also well suited for use in simulation labs.
A simulation lab enables researchers to develop realistic scenarios to study a range of human-system interactions in a controlled environment. It provides a lifelike point-of-care learning experience for undergraduate and graduate students, specialists, and experts. By conducting training sessions, students in the lab develop and maintain knowledge, skills, and competencies such as interviewing skills, working with certain equipment, teamwork procedures, and so on.
