Simulation modalities include task trainers, manikins, screen-based simulators and humans (simulated participants). Each of these modalities has wide variation in their level of technology, the extent of a task they support, their cost, their degree of representation of reality and the amount of requisite preparation and post-simulation support.

For each modality, students will learn to make decisions about selection of simulators for specific learning activities. The environment in which the simulations take place will also be considered (e.g. skills lab, in situ, mobile etc.) and additional technologies to support learning such as audio-visual capture and review. Using a systematic approach to simulation-based education, students will design, implement and evaluate a simulation.

Students will also have the opportunity to apply theory from the foundation unit in health professions education.
