Learning and assessment
The module will be delivered using a mixture of seminars, simulation, workshops, online learning activities and discussions via the Moodle platform. All activities will be facilitated by the module team and specialist guest lecturers, whilst also providing the opportunity for interprofessional learning both with, and from peers.
Learning and teaching
Each learning unit will focus on an aspect of simulation-based education, from the theory to the design, to facilitation. Learners will be provided with the opportunity to read, review and critique the processes involved in designing, organising, facilitating and evaluating simulation activities. The learners' development will be evidenced through the use of a digital portfolio, demonstrating their journey in achieving the module learning outcomes. Delivery will utilise a variety of teaching and learning activities e.g.
- Group discussion and debate
- Online learning
Learners will use self reflection within a lively, challenging and supportive learning environment enabling them to share knowledge and relevant practice experiences.
