Simulation as a Teaching Tool is hosted by Mater Education, and delivered by the Center for Medical Simulation through its Institute of Medical Simulation instructor training program.
This intensive four-day training program is designed to develop your skills in delivering safe and effective simulation-based learning.
Drawing on the disciplines of aviation, healthcare, psychology, experiential learning and organisational behaviour, you’ll learn how to teach clinical, behavioural and cognitive skills through simulation.
You’ll explore simulator-based teaching methods applicable across the healthcare education spectrum, including undergraduate and graduate medical, nursing and allied health domains.
Key topics include:
- patient simulation: history and context
- operating a simulation program
- creating a challenging and safe learning environment
- teaching critical thinking and skills
- teaching teamwork and crisis resource management
- developing debriefing skills
- preparing, building, conducting and debriefing realistic simulation scenarios
- avoiding simulation pitfalls and ineffective debriefing techniques
- introducing behavioural and educational research paradigms
- advancing simulation within your institution.
