The Hydra foundation is the community of ideas supporting the Hydra immersive learning methodologies. There are 85 Hydra simulation centres throughout the world, this community is focussed on providing real learning and research opportunities for expert practitioners working in the fields of; Emergency Services, Criminal Justice, Military, Government and Humanitarian Agencies.
The Hydra, Minerva and 10KV debriefing methodologies developed by Jonathan Crego, are continually evolving and are shaped by this community of dedicated and passionate people who represent the Hydra Foundation. The purpose of this website is to make available this growing research pool, to expert practitioners and fellow researchers, to further extend the possibilities of the methodologies.
The core values of the Hydra Foundation centre on a community of ideas.
This community must feel free to share research, share successes, and share creativity and be encouraged in the development of new and exciting approaches in the design and delivery of immersive methodologies. All of the Hydra community must recognise that the free exchange of ideas is pivotal to its collective identity and purpose. The community spans; public sector, academia, private enterprise and is global. The Hydra Foundation exists, not only to progress this work but also to ensure its existing operational research is made available to its stakeholders.
