As a veteran teacher looking for quality and affordable professional development, I could not have found a better option than this course at Tufts. This class provided teachers with a plethora of resources to be used in our classrooms, challenged teachers to think about their practice and materials, and created an atmosphere of collegiality and collaboration among professional educators. Thank you very much for this opportunity, I hope to return again next summer!

...psychiatrists are using VR to desensitize people with PTSD, or help people with bulimia practice responding to triggers in a safe environment. Occupational Therapists are using VR to help clients who have hemiparesis exercise and regain movement. In my lab we are exploring how to better use VR as a tool to manage chronic pain.

I very truly enjoyed the class that I took. The instructor was amazing. My classmates were gifted. Taking the course persuaded me to begin working on my application materials to apply to a graduate certificate in UEP
