Introducing Simulation into Your Curriculum: From Principles to Practice

Event

Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning, 3575 Parc Avenue, Suite 5640, Montreal, QC, H2X 3P9, CA
Price: 
Free course offered to McGill University faculty members, residents and fellows

Target audience: Educators who frequently develop and/or deliver simulation-based educational activities.

This one-day workshop is designed for educators with a significant engagement in simulation-based education. 
The program will provide participants with a foundational background of 'how people learn', the basic theoretical background behind simulation-based education and the evidence for the use of simulation-based education in practice. Participants will learn how to implement deliberate practice into their educational activities as well as improve their debriefing skills (and learn how to support their colleagues on doing the same). Co-learning with other leaders in simulation-based education will encourage networking and create shared opportunities across the McGill community.
 
Learning Objectives  
By the end of this workshop, the participant will be able to:
  •  Describe how people learn and understand the added value of simulation;
  •  Outline the principles of effective debriefing for simulation-based education;
  •  Apply different methods of debriefing and describe the advantages / disadvantages of each approach;
  •  Discuss a variety of opportunities and approaches for teaching and learning with simulation and outline best practices in each context.

This workshop is an Accredited Simulation Activity (Section 3) and is eligible for 22.5 Continuing Medical Education credits.
