The PVCESE Innovation Pillar, in collaboration with Arts, Design, and Architecture’s Master of Simulation and Immersive Technologies, is proud to host an exciting and insightful lunchtime talk by virtual reality industry leader Spectre Studios on using Virtual Reality to prepare for crisis events.

Mick Byrne from Spectre Studios will discuss creating a VR experience to prepare students to apply first aid in a disaster, and attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the use of emerging immersive technologies as an instructional strategy. Those attending face to face* will be able to experience the VR training firsthand, while those attending online will see a livestreamed demonstration of the technology.

*Note, while online participation is unlimited, face-to-face tickets are strictly limited, so make sure to book early if you'd like to attend in person.

This event is for anyone with interests in the use of VR for teaching, visualisation and decision making, as well as anyone preparing students to apply skills and knowledge in high-stress situations, such as in medicine and emergency management defence.
