Introducing a blended networked learning approach into simulation based medical education (SBME): a collaborative interdisciplinary approach to project development

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paperpeer-review



Lancashire Simulation Centre (LSC) has successfully used a face-to-face teaching/learning approach for undergraduate/postgraduate medical students and professional development for several years. This approach consists of three components: briefing (providing a range of clinical skills and knowledge required to participate in simulated scenarios), simulation (hands on experience), and de-briefing (reflection/feedback session). To use the expensive simulation facility more productively, the team decided to develop on-line briefing sessions. As a result, learners have opportunities to prepare themselves for simulation sessions in a more flexible manner and have more time for hands on practice in the simulation lab. A networked learning approach is used as the theoretical lens for the development of the blended SBME and the ADDIE model for the project development.
