LeFlore earns Computerworld honors

Nursing Professor Judy LeFlore has earned national recognition from the 2012 Computerworld Honors Laureate program for her work using 3D gaming technology to teach students about in-hospital pediatric care.

Dr. LeFlore’s project “Can Game Play Teach Student Nurses How to Save Lives?” explored whether a 3D video game could teach nursing students how to respond to patients in a clinical setting. She and Assistant Professor Mindi Anderson worked with Marjorie Zielke, assistant professor of arts and technology at UT Dallas, to develop a game scenario called “iNursingRN: Respiratory Distress.”

The work was backed by $250,000 in funding from the UT System’s Transforming Undergraduate Education grant program. Dr. Zielke and LeFlore will receive the award in June in Washington, D.C.
