This course is now available asynchronously.

This 4-hour online micro-course will enable you to develop a practical understanding of skills and concepts related to briefing and debriefing - a crucial component to all simulation and experiential learning. During two recorded online lectures we will engage in topics related to the process of effective briefing and debriefing, key phases, and situational variables which influence the choice of approach of debriefing.

With clinical placement opportunities limited by the pandemic, many schools are emphasizing simulation opportunities for learners to gain essential skills and experiences. For educators who have limited prior experience or training in simulation-based education, this course provides a quick, practical introduction to briefing and debriefing for effective learning in simulation.

This course is part of our new micro-course series for educators entering simulation or adapting their approaches in response to the pandemic.
