Developing a Successful Simulation-Based Curriculum
Presented by Leigha Jansen, EdD, CCC-A
Course: #7575 Level: Introductory1 Hour
Simulation-based clinical education provides students with a sophisticated, controlled, learner-centered experience that allows for repeated practice of clinical decision-making skills in a risk-free environment. The success of a simulation-based curriculum is determined by a well-designed teaching plan founded on strong instructional guidance. Simulation activities, regardless of the modality, must support the learning objectives of a course, as well as utilize an evidence-based teaching approach to promote higher levels of cognitive function, including analysis, synthesis and evaluation (Bloom, 1956), and facilitate student learning. This course will review the practical aspects of implementing simulation into Communication Sciences & Disorders (CSD) clinical education using an evidence-based instructional model.
