Course Offerings

Introduction to Simulation-based Education

Designed to provide an overview of the theoretical basis for incorporating simulation into health professions education. The course incorporates a guided immersive experience for participants in the progression of simulation scenario development, simulation execution, and scenario debriefing. Best evidence practices in simulation education are demonstrated throughout the course. (2 day, English or Spanish, UM or on-site)

 

Simulation Instructor Development

Designed for new instructors, this interactive course provides an introductory foundation for simulation-based education. Participants learn the principles of experiential learning including various types of simulation instruction, scenario design and debriefing strategies. Common instructional challenges and solutions in simulation instruction are addressed throughout the course. (2 day, English or Spanish, UM or on-site)

 

Simulation Debriefing

Designed for new instructors, this interactive course provides an evidence-based overview of common debriefing methods utilized in healthcare simulation-based education. Emphasis is placed on selection and use of debriefing methods that best fit for the learner and simulation objectives. Participants will role-play the part of learners and debriefers in various simulation scenarios. (2 day, English or Spanish, UM or on-site)

 

Design and Building Your Simulation Center

Designed for faculty, administrators and simulation support specialist who will be tasked with the planning, design, and building (or expanding) a healthcare simulation center. Emphasis is placed on matching learner and educational objectives to physical design and operational workflow of the Simulation Center. Planning and design considerations address: clinical simulation spaces, operational layout, AV support, and simulation operational logistics, storage, and building operations, budget, and project management. (2 day, English or Spanish, UM or on-site)

 

Simulation Operations and Support Specialist Development

Designed for new simulation operations specialists focusing on essential tasks associated with the daily operations and maintenance of a simulation center. An overview of simulation-based education is presented followed by interactive sessions focused on scenario set-up, basic manikin operations, AV and IT support, and scenario execution. Common operational challenges and solutions in simulation instruction are addressed throughout the course. (2 day, English or Spanish, UM or on-site)
