Adaptive VR Learning Simulations


This project has the objective of developing immersive VR laboratory simulations with integrated educational measurement models and adaptive functionality that significantly increases learning outcomes in medical education. By applying state-of-the-art item response theory (IRT), computerized adaptive testing (CAT) and immersive VR simulation technology with mathematical modeling, the aim is to create a new departure in virtual adaptive learning tools. The scientific idea of this project is to optimize individualized learning opportunities for medical students at the university level by applying state-of-the-art knowledge within advanced simulation of medical laboratory procedures, educational measurement, adaptive testing and functionality, and content knowledge in medicine and medical education.
