Helene Fuld Pavilion for Innovative Learning and Simulation
The mission of the Helene Fuld Pavilion for Innovative Learning is to generate critical thinking and clinical judgment in student visitors through a variety of creative teaching strategies, preparing them as providers who offer safe, high quality, and patient-centered care.
Our vision is to serve as the hub for creative teaching in both intra- and inter-professional education. Activities in the Helene Fuld Pavilion provide opportunities for students and providers to learn with and from one another, resulting in the highest quality of collaborative inter-professional care.
Technology Refresh Project Slated for Summer
The Helene Fuld Pavilion, in partnership with Nursing Information Technology Services, is scheduled to begin a technology refresh project during the Summer 2020 term. The official start date is pending resumption of in-person building access for staff and construction personnel following COVID-19 mitigation policies.
As a result of the construction, which will require equipment and supplies to be moved off-site, the Fuld Pavilion will remain closed during this time, reopening to full operations for the Fall 2020 semester.
The roughly $2 million capital improvement project, in development since 2018, will update audiovisual technology throughout the lab.
The project is expected to yield benefits to students, faculty and staff, including: improved video and sound quality for learning and assessments, improved communication with learners and confederates, reduced physical space needs for servers and equipment, clearer communication of simulation activities through digital calendars in the lab, single sign-on functionality, and improved efficiency and data reporting.
The updates include:
- Audiovisual software, B-Line Medical, migrates to the latest, cloud-based version
- Cameras, servers and supporting hardware will be replaced with cloud-based technology
- In-room screens and speakers will be replaced with updated equipment
- Adoption of mobile cameras to be implemented
- Microphones, speakers and technology control equipment updated to improve operations
- New screens implemented outside of classrooms
