2021 Workshops


Sunshine Coast Health Institute

30 March 2021, 8:00am – 4:30pm

Venue: Sunshine Coast Health Institute, Level 1, 6 Doherty Street, Birtinya, QLD 4575

Module: C2 - Being a simulation educator

This module covers basic principles of simulation with a particular focus on educational design for simulation scenarios, briefing and debriefing practices. We consider what it means to be a simulation educator. Even if you are mainly involved in technical aspects of simulation-based education (SBE), we considered it important to be exposed to the core elements of the work of a simulation educator. This module facilitates formation of a local community of practice by bringing participants together to discuss and practice SBE and training techniques.

  • Facilitator/s: Mark Harrington and David Monk
  • Not open to external participants

Module: S10 – Developing scenarios

Scenarios are a fundamental part of simulation-based education and require careful planning to enable the simulation to meet required learning outcomes. Scenarios can be difficult to develop and may require several iterations to optimally support learning. Factors that enable and constrain scenario development will also be discussed.

Module: S9 – Debriefing in simulation

This module provides you with an opportunity to reflect on your debriefing practices. The online module revisits information on debriefing from Module C2 - Being a simulation educator. Here we explore conditions for effective debriefing. However, effective debriefing is much more than a set of skills and techniques. It is important to continue to reflect deeply on your values about learning and teaching. There will be an opportunity for you to share experiences of what works and what does not together with opportunities to practice and receive feedback on your debriefing. You will also have an opportunity to use different techniques to reflect on your debriefing practice and set goals for further development of your debriefing.
