Despite the fact that regulations have a significant impact on health, safety and welfare, research into their impact is almost nonexistent. The adoption of new regulations should be tied to basic research and testing. Furthermore, there should be legal mechanisms that monitor the efficacy of the regulations and modify them to align with their original intent.
This article compares the varied types of team-based training offered at simulation centers in educational institutions and healthcare system-based centers in order to identify how this learning style impacts the simulation spaces we design.
New technologies have increasingly moved to the center of 21st century learning, inspiring innovative learning concepts and potentially influencing our conception of educational space. This research refers to discoveries in neuroscience and cognitive psychology; it introduces theories about the ideal learning environment and takes a look at studies about the influence of the environment on academic performance and behavior.
While online education has brought with it radical transformations to higher education, bringing people together in physical space is and will be essential for student success.
British Technology Innovation Centers each focus on a particular research theme that, though specialized, has relevance across a wide range of industries. They promote faster and more effective translation of laboratory discoveries into products and processes for commercialization.
