Using A Virtual Birth Unit To Teach Midwifery Students

This is part of a workshop I ran with Dr Deborah Davis on Second Life and midwifery education at the Australian College of Midwives conference, Adelaide, September 2009. The presentation is about the work we have been doing with the virtual birthing unit in Second Life as part of the Second Life Education New Zealand project.

NB: I have to clarify that the BUD research was carried out by the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), not the University of Sydney.
