What is realism during a training exercise? And what type of design would be most suitable for this? These subjects were addressed by FireWare’s Sef Hendrickx during a lecture at the Dutch Resuscitation Council Conference. This 14th conference was held in the NBC on 15th March 2017.
We looked at new forms of teaching during this conference. What can we achieve with VR and augmented reality? How can we learn and what’s the importance of the element of play in this regard? What can we do with apps?
In addition to staging examples, whereby the environment has been recreated as realistically as possible, FireWare has also devoted attention to staging whereby the dilemma has been simulated as effectively as possible. This was further substantiated from the ideas created by “Homo Ludens” or “the playing man”.
Some new training concepts, such as the escape room at Intertraining, but also the interactive First Aid simulator at FireControl were also shared with the visitors. We can certainly come to the conclusion that both concepts were enthusiastically received! We can therefore look back on a very successful conference, with many inspiring speakers.
