This five-day highly interactive certificate course features a multi-disciplinary faculty who teach how to combine simulation with traditional methodologies, apply assessment tools, and choose among various simulation modalities for specific applications. The course provides a practical framework in learning theory, group dynamics, and psychology of the learner, focusing on debriefing skills.
A sound integration strategy depends on clinical faculty who understand the theory and practice of simulation. Jumpstart your simulation program with the Penn State Hershey Instructor Course. The Simulation Center, a leader in educating faculty to teach with simulation, has been offering this five-day experiential course continuously since 2007. Our graduates are active in all disciplines and levels of clinical practice. In this course you will:
- Discover why simulation is a technique, not a technology.
- Conclude that a simulation program’s first step is not to buy a manikin.
- Distinguish simulation learning from how you learned in college.
- Demonstrate the art of debriefing.
Each participant assumes the role of student, instructor, and assessor in various simulation activities throughout the week.
Class space is limited to 15 participants!
