Abstract: Infection control practices are at the
forefront of education and compliance monitoring. A university-funded
grant allowed faculty and instructional designers to create an
experience that increased student awareness, application, and
appreciation of infection-control concepts. Computer-based instruction
modules are used to provide content, and students participate in a
simulation that allows them to apply their newly learned skills in a
realistic, immersive environment with a biosphere used to visually
depict infectious spread. Student feedback suggests the usefulness of
this methodology as a teaching strategy that reinforces evidence-based
practice, critical thinking, and clinical judgments.
