Train the Trainer

Participants of this interactive course are multidisciplinary teams of physicians, nurses and other advanced care providers with none or limited formal education on the topics of education science, simulation design, and implementation. M Simulation  staff lay an educational framework for the participants on the utilization of active learning principles using simulation as the principle means for instruction.

Future dates of the train the trainer course are TBD based on COVID, please check back in 2021 or contact Nick Newman, Administrator for further information at [email protected] This is a 1.5 day course, for 10.25 CME credits.

The gaps we address are:

  • deficient knowledge of education theory¬†
  • techniques of good pre-briefing and debriefing
  • simulation development and implementation
  • methods of assessment of learners, instructors and coursework
  • methods and techniques to enhance feedback

The first course took place in December of 2017 and was highly regarded; the most recent iteration took place on August 30 & 31, 2018. We will be holding another course in the spring of 2019 (this is a 1.5 day course, for 10.25 CME credits).

Participants increase knowledge of education theory, demonstrate behaviors of good debriefing techniques, and develop a simulation scenario with all the needed assessment materials. This will allow integration of simulation for education and enhanced opportunities for active learning in the current curriculum.
