Skill Enhancement Exercises

Virtual Simulation

Participants may experience a virtual environment to talk with life-like youth about their interests and challenges in a group setting, as well as engage with a life-like employer to promote work. Our project teamed up with UWGLive to provide these live, interactive simulations for you.

If you are training in the simulation lab, you will be part of a group. Each of you will be engaging with the avatars in 10-minute simulations and then learning from your fellow students as they step into the scenario. The delivery of the simulation will be done remotely, via a video communications platform accessed through your computer.

“When you begin to work with the avatars, you can see body language and hear the tone of voice. It is amazing how quickly you are immersed in the experience. One almost forgets you are interacting with a simulation.” Dr. Margaret Glenn
