2020 Faculty Development Course Offerings

With this Faculty Development Series, we are committed to supporting your efforts to provide experiential learning opportunities for clinicians acrossYale New Haven Health System. Simulation offers a dynamic education process that requires:

  • technical expertise in simulator equipment
  • knowledge of how to create an environment conducive to learning
  • keen awareness of and ability to observe specific behaviors within clinical scenarios and at the bedside
  • an acumen of debriefing strategies to prompt self-reflection on the part of the learners
  • tools to assess the impact of your educational interventions

Our step-wise curriculum will provide you with the skills you need to succeed. To ensure the quality of our training programs, we require all faculty to participate in Introduction to Simulation and Debriefing.

Introduction to Simulation and Debriefing

(CME credits are available.)

This one-day course builds from the ground up, beginning with the elements of simulation-based education with adult learning principles in order to provide the clinician educator with a strong foundation and structure for creating experiential learning opportunities. Other course objectives cover practice simulation, including scenario design and implementation, as well as effective debriefing. The course is interactive and allows opportunity for practice and prompt application.

Upcoming Courses:

  • Feb. 06, 2020 
  • April 7, 2020 
  • May 27, 2020 
  • July 9, 2020 
  • Sept. 15, 2020 
  • Nov 18, 2020

Advanced Debriefing Seminar Series

Debriefing requires skill and lots of practice.  To provide more practice opportunities, we have developed a seminar series, that includes five 3-hour sessions that examine several debriefing models and delve deeper into specific skills and strategies. Learners may participate in any or all sessions, in any order, following completion of Introduction to Simulation and Debriefing. Come explore with us.

  • Promoting Excellence and Reflective Learning in Simulation Framework (PEARLS)
    This session introduces the, and reinforces the importance of observation skills to prompt reflection. PEARLS is a blended learning approach that can be used flexibly for novice to expert learners.
  • After Action Review (AAR)
    This session presents the AAR for healthcare debriefing model. It also reinforces the importance of observation skills to prompt reflection. Participants will also practice incorporating video into debriefing.
  • Deliberative Practice and Coaching
    This session teaches the technique of reflection-in-action, as opposed to reflection-on-action.  Participants explore techniques and considerations for pausing simulations to reflect on decision-making in the moment.
  • Engaging the Challenging Learner
    This session explores techniques and strategies for engaging the challenging learner. A guest faculty member from the IFE will discuss skills from Crucial Conversations that can be applied to debriefing in simulation.
  • Video-Based Debriefing
    This session will explore techniques for using video to augment debriefing discussions. Learners will have opportunities to practice incorporating video using several debriefing models.
