NeVRNER - Nebraska VR Network for Education and Research

  • Collaborate with NeVRNER.
  • Describe ideas and concerns about immersive technologies.
  • Discuss experience with educational immersive technologies.


We would like to speak about a group that originated from a group of faculty from University of Nebraska Medical Center, University of Nebraska Omaha and University of Nebraska Lincoln, to develop a unique platform for faculty and staff to get together and discuss how to use technology (e.g. virtual reality, simulation, 360 video, 3D printing) to advance medical education and research, and to help students to trainee to maximize their learning experience. NeVRNER has three cores (Idea, Design and Implementation) to serve different stages of development. In this session, we will highlight some projects from the network and share some experience to the audience about how to bring an interprofessional team to develop a project from idea to design, and from design to implementation.
