Using Hightech Simulators: Training on „smart ears“
The afh is the first educational institution in Germany to use the state-of-the-art ear simulators in their practical training courses. Removal of cerumen and other tasks can be practiced on these lifelike ear simulators, while the interior view is transmitted to outside monitors. Observations and targeted feedback through lecturers is thus optimized. The „smart ears“ are mainly used in preparatory classes for the Master Craftsman/woman examination and other further education courses at the afh. An integration of this tool is also planned for the industry-wide training of apprentices.
