New Directions: Virtual World Simulations

Most of our work in Second Life has focused on project based learning and disseminating information about health and wellness through student presentations. Over the past two years, an additional area has developed as a focal point for virtual world project development: A virtual training program designed to prepare students to address the needs of homeless and formerly homeless populations.  See more about this project,  which provides training for inter professional teams of graduate students in the health and human services professions, at the link below:
