Simulation Basics and Best Practices: What You Need to Know - Part 2

Simulation Basics and Best Practices: What You Need to Know - Part 2

Wednesday, January 26, 2022
7:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M. ET

In session two of this series, the knowledge, skills and behaviors which can be enhanced with the use of simulation education will be described, including technical and functional training, problem-solving, decision-making and communication skills. 

The 'how to' process of simulation design will be revealed, such as when in the curriculum it is appropriate to do so, what type of simulation modality to use, creating a scenario, steps to prepare students and facilitation and debriefing techniques. Implementation and development resources will be provided.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify educational theories (pedagogy/andragogy) that contribute to simulation education
  • Describe learning outcomes and instructional designs best supported by simulation education
  • Define best practice in simulation education scenario development
