Access to Bodyswaps Immersive Skills Virtual Reality

Durham College logo plus the words 2023 Grant Recipient, Immersive Soft Skills Education Grant. BodySwaps logo and Meta logo appear at the bottom.

The CTL is proud to announce that we’re a recipient of the Immersive Soft Skills Education Grant from Bodyswaps and Meta Immersive Learning.

As part of the grant, interested faculty will have access to the entire soft skills course library simulation  to integrate in their course(s) during the winter and spring semester. Simulations can be completed through a computer browser, mobile device or through Quest 2 headsets for the complete virtual reality experience.

This tool was developed by behavioral scientists and learning designers  to transform behavior through applied skills practice and self-reflection. Depending on the scenario students respond to the prompt in their own words, using their voice and body language, then swap bodies and watch themselves from another perspective. At the end of the simulation, a custom report is provided on behaviour analysis and semantics.

Example simulations include public speaking interview simulation bias as a barrier gender inclusion understanding conflict; providing feedback; resolving conflict; and mental healthcare practitioner.

Check out the Module Library for a full listing of modules and learning objectives.
