Teaching & Learning
The methods of teaching and learning are continually evolving. New technologies create new opportunities for the way we reach and activate students. In doing so, we can rethink the freedoms and priorities of the teacher, too.
Time to Act – Emergency Care: practising the ABCDE approach in virtual reality
The Centre for Innovation of Leiden University, together with the Leiden University Medical Centre (the team of Prof. dr. MEJ Reinders), created an immersive interactive VR experience using 360° video to practise the application of the ABCDE approach. This cornerstone method is a systematic approach to quickly and accurately assess and act upon emergency situations concerning critically ill patients.
How to direct inexperienced presenters
At the Centre, we film people every day. Most of them have limited camera experience. They might post to Instagram once in a while, but that's about it. It's our job as media specialists to make our novice presenters feel at ease in front of the camera, so they can give a relaxed, natural performance. In this article we provide some tips and advice on how to do that.
