Session Two Preparations Copy Copy

Virtual Simulation: An Educator’s Toolkit

To access the readings or download the Virtual Simulation: An Educator’s Toolkit, click on the button below, which will take you directly to the toolkit where you will have the option to either “Read Book” or download as a digital PDF, Printable PDF, EPUB or Pressbooks XML. The readings are easily accessible and available for free via a creative commons license.  Please note, that by downloading the digital PDF rather than using the “Read Book” option, you will sacrifice the interactivity of the Toolkit.

Step One: Assigned Readings

Prior to virtual synchronous session 2, read the following chapters of the e-textbook available linked below:

  • Chapter 3: Pre-brief
  • Chapter 5: De-brief
  • Chapter 6: Evaluation

Step Two: Activity Worksheet

Download the worksheet and complete it on your computer ahead of the second live session.

Please note that you do not need to submit the worksheet but be prepared to share your work and discuss it during the workshop. Having completed the worksheet ahead of time will help you to actively participate in the discussions. 

Example: You can view an example of this worksheet completed by an experienced simulationist. Please note that your worksheet will be different depending on the virtual simulation, student level, type of enactment, and format of the debrief.

Step Three: Virtual Synchronous Session

Join the virtual synchronous session at the assigned time for your cohort. Please see the Workshop Session Zoom Links page for the times and access links. 

Please note, the virtual synchronous sessions will NOT be recorded, in order to promote open discussion.
