Title: The transition to online simulation-based education in 2020
Presenter: Kim Lustig
Faculty of Science, School of Community Health
Session Type: Quick Talk
When: Thursday 19th November 2020, 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm
Abstract: This ‘Quick Talk’ will discuss how I was challenged to consider the ways in which the Occupational Therapy course could deliver both ‘snapshot’ simulated experiences as well as a simulated clinical placement in alternative formats to our students in 2020. This included delivering these experiences online and within simulated telehealth services.
The preparation, implementation and evaluation of these experiences will be discussed, including the impact that these experiences have had on the students. Considerations for ongoing delivery of simulation-based experiences in an online format will be discussed, including possible benefits of continuing this in a post-COVID world. Therefore, it is anticipated that this presentation will relate to the theme of “Harnessing the Lessons from 2020”. It is expected that the theme of “Thriving and Succeeding Beyond 2020’s Challenges” will also be addressed. This will include discussing the potential impact that participating in online simulation may have on students’ future workplace learning experiences, which will also most likely include online and telehealth-based experiences.
