Learning Activity 1: Vision and Hearing Loss Simulation

Time to complete: 3 hours

This learning activity involves a simulation to help you understand how you experience your surroundings when your vision and hearing is limited. You will do the simulation in a public place and pay particular attention to how your own internal state (e.g., sleepy, happy, hungry) and external state (e.g., odors, movements around you) influence your experience.
