Dr Julie-Ann Sime


Research Overview

I am interested in how educators and other professionals can:- learn from experience and develop competence;- learn to work together in online environments (networked learning/team training); and- adopt new technologies and design learning experiences.

I have experience of collaborating with a wide range of European science and engineering organisations to research into innovative technology-enhanced learning solutions in professional development, particularly involving video/virtual reality technologies such as simulations, games and virtual reality worlds. Previous research has involved a virtual/online laboratory for training radio-pharmacists, and 3D simulation based training for emergency response teams.
