Inspired Teaching

 Debriefing in Simulation-Based Teaching & Learning*

Presented by the Centre for Simulation-Based Learning (CSBL)

📅 Monday, November 8th, 2021, 1-4pm ET

💻 Delivered Virtually

This interactive, half day workshop is for beginner-level educators interested in debriefing scenario-based simulation (either standardized patient or theatre-based). The workshop will provide hands-on experience with common debriefing techniques and explore challenging debriefing situations.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this virtual event, participants will be able to:


*This is a CSBL-accredited event, which will provide participants with up to 2.75 hours of Royal College MOC Section 1 credit for this group activity.
