The Sentara Center for Simulation and Immersive Learning is actively leading and reporting on research regarding the development and use of simulation and advanced educational technologies across a wide array of learner groups. We also serve as a resource for students and faculty to conduct research in the use of educational technologies, simulation devices and novel curricula.
