"On the edge of reality: Some challenges in using simulation to supplement students' lived experiences.'
Ed Errington, University of North Queensland
Video conference streamed live from this webpage
The presentation focuses on the pros, cons and challenges facing educators using simulated media to supplement life experience of health/medical students. It considers the place of psychological realism; situated contexts; perceptions of teaching & teaching delivery; and, learning and alternative curricula in enriching lived experience. Each of these factors can individually, or in combination, aid or hinder the relative efficacy of simulation as a potentially viable supplement for real experience.  The presenter offers ways that these challenges might be met and simulated learning optimised.
