Simulation and Clinical Learning
This is a modular course which aims to develop a critical understanding of how simulation can be deployed to enhance teaching, learning and assessment for the field of healthcare; simulation can be defined as emulating a real-life situation in a controlled (non-real) environment, to safely provide a life-like experience; this creates the opportunity to act, reflect and obtain feedback to assist in achieving competence and progression towards expert level through deliberate and repeated practice in an ascending learning spiral; the programme is run on a multi-professional basis, allowing practitioners, managers and clinical educators from different professions and locations to share their knowledge, experience and skills.
Normally a 1st degree; applicants must be experienced professionals with some responsibility for clinical education; applicants are not expected to be currently using simulation when they apply to join the course, although experienced simulation practitioners are also welcome to apply; references are required; interviews may also be used to supplement the application process.
Core modules: teaching, learning and simulation in the clinical context; using simulation to support clinical learning. Curriculum design pathway: curriculum design in clinical education. Educational leadership pathway: educational leadership in health settings; managing and developing medical education. Educational supervision pathway: educational supervision in the clinical context; supporting the postgraduate learner in the medical workplace.
