iSIM Course: Improving Instructional Methods for Simulation Educators


Are you looking for training in medical simulation instructional methods?  Project Manager Richard Rodríguez-Pérez from The Michael S. Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education wrote in to let me know about the upcoming iSim Course taking place September 17th-19th.

This 2.5 day program is a collaborative effort of the Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education (GCRME) at the University of Miami and the Peter M. Winter Institute for Simulation, Education and Research (WISER) at the University of Pittsburgh. It is designed as an introduction to fundamental skills and abilities for delivering simulation-based healthcare education through a variety of techniques and technologies. The program emphasizes hands-on activities and active participation to maximize simulation-based instruction skill acquisition. The program is open to all medical professionals who are interested in improving their simulation-based instructional skills and is targeted at those with a background in healthcare education.

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Review and discuss methods of simulation, simulation technologies and simulation environments.
  • Identify and incorporate evidence-based features that lead to effective simulation-based learning.
  • Review basic design and development elements for constructing a simulation scenario activity.
  • Identify simulation environment design requirements elements as they relate to required fidelity and equipment for simulation activities.
  • Identify the elements necessary to use simulation for assessment and debriefing.
  • Review debriefing methods for team training simulation activities.
  • Implement fundamental strategies for debriefing healthcare teams

While covering the WISER Nursing Simulation Symposium last month I had a chance to sit down with one of the Directors of the iSim Course, Dr. Paul Phrampus – where he shared about the powerful training program during our video interview:
