Simulation and Clinical Learning
This Postgraduate Certificate in Simulation and Clinical Learning has been designed for a range of health professionals (medical doctors, dentists, nurses and allied health professionals), clinical educators and healthcare managers who wish to develop specialist knowledge, skills and understanding of simulation as a modality for teaching and supporting learning and assessment. It will equip you with a critical understanding of how simulation can be deployed to enhance teaching, learning and assessment in 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 will be run on a multi-professional basis, allowing practitioners, managers and clinical educators from different professions and locations to share their knowledge, experience and skills. You will systematically and creatively analyse the complexities of clinical education and explore and articulate opportunities for developing simulation in your own practice.
Postgraduate Certificate - PgCert: You should normally have a first degree and be an experienced professional 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 welcome to apply. You will be asked to provide references. Interviews may also be used to supplement the application process.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
There are no examinations. A range of assessment strategies are employed in this programme including online tasks, critical reflection on practice, assignments, evaluative reports, case studies, peer observation of teaching, the design of learning activities and the creation of portfolios. You will be supported by your academic tutors with academic skills practice and 'formative feedback' on work-in-progress. You will be expected to write approximately 4,000 words (or equivalent) for each module.
