AaE: Simulation Unplugged

Course Overview
The Sim Unplugged course has been designed for those interested in developing their knowledge and skills in teaching educational Simulation.  This course debunks simulation myths and really gets back to the nuts and bolts of what you and your learners need. 

This course is suitable for senior trainees, SAS doctors and consultants who are interested in delivering simulation-based teaching and learning in their own workplace.

A faculty of simulation experts from across the UK have put together a programme that will leave you energised and with new perspectives on simulation-based education together with lots of practical ideas that will help you when you get back to base.

Participants on the course have said:

  • “fantastic”…“great intro for the novice but even more suited to those, like myself, with some experience.”
  • "inspiring”…“turned my perspective around”…“completely changed how we designed our courses”… “I would have caused more harm doing stuff without coming on this course”…“ my teaching will be more effective and better received.”
  • “an excellent day”… “would recommend”…“ all the bells and whistles of a sim centre aren’t necessary to provide good teaching.” 

Topics covered:

  • Application of educational theory to simulation practice.
  • Spectrum and scope of simulation.
  • Range and appropriate level of fidelity.
  • Techniques and requirements for effective simulation.
  • Resources required for a successful simulation project.
