Learning and Teaching with Simulation - PDM1115
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.
In this online course, scholars will learn to make decisions about selection of simulators for specific learning activities for each modality. 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, scholars will design, implement and evaluate a simulation.
