Workshop 4 – Simulation Scenario development: Manikin, Hybrid or SP?
Medical education has undergone a substantial shift from ex-cathedra teaching towards interactive methods and learner-centered approaches. Simulation is one of the outstanding instrument to foster active learning, team work and communication. In the last years the variety of tools for simulation experiences has grown, and for long time the world of simulation was split into manikin-users and SP-users. Nowadays many simulation specialists use different simulation instruments for teaching.
The aim of this workshop is to address the diversity of simulations as learning instruments and to illustrate the importance of learning objectives as a starting point for the development of a simulation scenario.
Participants in the workshop
- Should acknowledge the importance of well-defined learning objectives
- Should learn that learning goals influence the choice of the simulation “tool”
- Should become familiar with the different sim instruments (manikins, hybrid simulation and SPs)
- Should recognize advantages and limitations of the different instruments
After an introduction by the instructors with a presentation of the different types of simulation and a guideline for scenario development, participants will develop short scenarios based on chosen learning objectives. The scenarios will be presented in the plenary and will be the start of an exchange of experiences. The workshop ends with a short self-reflection on the lessons learnt.
Healthcare professionals, educators and simulation specialists involved in the development of simulation scenarios.
