Join us on Wednesday, September 27 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. in Room 827 of the Office of Academic Innovation space in the Hatcher Graduate Library (8th floor of Hatcher South) for a meeting of the Simulations Community of Practice.
The Simulations Community of Practice is an interdisciplinary group of U-M staff and faculty who meet regularly to discuss the development and implementation of simulation-based teaching tools. Participants explore the benefits and challenges of simulation activities, as well as share experiences and resources.
During this meeting, participants will discuss the special considerations needed for planning, facilitating and debriefing simulation activities that involve sensitive topics or contexts. How might we address the social and emotional challenges participants face as they take part in such simulations? How might a facilitator anticipate or respond to the challenging situations and interactions that arise during simulation activities?
All instructors and staff who create and/or facilitate simulation activities for the classroom, or who are interested in doing so, are welcome to attend.
