COMMUNITIES OF LEARNING
This is the guiding philosophy of Simulation Canada's education division.
Professional development in simulation is now available online or on-site!
Our goal is to make our courses as accessible and practical as possible, while building relationships and the collaborative simulation community. We have now taken our programming one step further to make professional development as accessible and cost-effective as possible with Simulation Canada - either through on-site courses or online, interactive distance learning.
We bring Canada's simulation expertise to you, to meet the needs of your organization. Choose from any of our courses or combine two courses into a customized program. In particular, many schools have found it beneficial to host the Keystones Apex course, as this provides all the foundational skills in simulation-based education, quickly builds organizational capacity for high-quality, effective simulation, and qualifies participants for the Keystones Certificate in Simulation.
Choose between a private offering for your organization or an open course to which external participants may register. Course host sites save money by receiving a free registration in exchange for hosting the course plus volume discounts based on the number of registrants.
Please contact us to discuss the best option that works for you.
Simulation Canada's online learning programs are a new and exciting education initiative. We structure our online courses as facilitated, interactive programs to maintain the connections and community-building among peers and experts that are a hallmark of our in-person courses.
Four courses are currently available for online professional development:
- Keystones Apex - comprehensive fundamentals in simulation
- Briefing, Debriefing and Facilitating Simulations
- Scenario Writing
- Simulation Research Primer
Courses are offered in an e-learning environment that encourages flexible engagement with peers and course content. Each course is facilitated by Simulation Canada experts and experienced faculty members.
Like our in-person courses, online courses may be arranged as private offerings for single organizations or as open courses.
Hosting an Online Course
To organizations interested in virtually hosting an online course, we offer:
- Customization and contextualization of our courses to align with your needs
- Private hosting to focus on development of your simulation team and strategy
- The option to open the course to external registrants
- Volume discounts based on the total number of registrants
Our packages are cost-effective and customizable for your needs. Please contact us to discuss the best option that works for you.
