According to a report, the Indian School of Hospitality (ISH), in a move to bring development to the hospitality education and industry will now focus on Virtual Reality technology as their learning and training aid. Along with US-based virtual reality developers TRANSFRVRTM, ISH hosted the first-ever virtual reality hospitality Learning & Development workshop at the brand-new technology enabled ISH Campus in Gurugram. This path-breaking VR workshop displays a completely revolutionary approach to training and learning in an efficient and cost-effective new way.

In a series of workshops, prototypes of VR modules for Bartending, Housekeeping, and Coffee Making were demonstrated to senior housekeeping, food and beverage, training leaders and General Managers of the industry. The aim was to showcase the technologies and opportunities, and then receive feedback from the industry in order to develop comprehensive modules for use in training as well as in education. Participants had the opportunity to experience TRANSFRVR’s proprietary VR technology personally and see the possibilities of the software being tailor-made to meet their needs. ISH and TRANSFRVRTM are collaborating to find solutions which can help companies in bolstering employee development and skilling, and academic institutions in the field of hospitality management, culinary arts, housekeeping and F&B.

Speaking on the occasion, Dilip Puri, Founder & CEO, ISH, said, “It is the vision of ISH to bring in new technologies which can enable learning in education as well as Learning and Development for hospitality and allied industries. We are delighted to have had the opportunity to showcase this amazing technology and the opportunities it presents. This marks the beginning of integrating technologies for a better learning experience for both ISH students and companies across industries. I am looking forward to introducing and using VR technology into our own curriculums for all our long and short term programmes. I believe it can give our students a completely revolutionary way of acquiring new skills and knowledge.”

Bharanidharan Rajakumar, CEO of TRANSFRVR stated, “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Dilip and his exceptional team at ISH to bring our virtual reality hospitality training model to India. We look forward to helping students, employees, managers and companies achieve their professional goals while also supporting the development of India’s rapidly growing hospitality industry.”

ISH is getting ready to open for its first academic intake on August 1, 2018 starting with undergraduate programmes in Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts.
