Description for 2024/25

This module aims to:
- Guide learners in the examination of the current educational theories and evidence base in the literature for simulation in clinical education, enabling students to have sound pedagogical base on simulation
- Guide learners in an exploration of the activities, methods and technologies currently used in simulation in clinical educational settings
- Give practical experience of applying theory and evidence to the design and delivery of a simulated learning session
- Develop critical appraisal skills by assessing the effectiveness of simulation in a practical setting
- Develop feedback skills specific to simulation based learning
