Event Details

Do you have more content than class time? Do you need to assess student proficiency at complex skills that can’t be adequately evaluated with a written exam? A simulation for learning can increase learning efficiency by allowing to students integrate multiple activities during the same session. Add interdisciplinary interaction and you can allow for practicing extended communication, negotiation, and team problem-solving skills.


This 2-part simulation will showcase how different disciplines interacting can complement learning. The first 20 minute simulation (Part 1) focuses on West Campus disciplines and will be followed by a debrief over lunch.  The second 20 minute simulation (Part 2) will demonstrate a health-related scenario. The crucial debrief process that follows each simulation scenario follows a similar method regardless of the disciplines involved.

Lunch is provided and registration is required for limited seating.


Demonstration leaders: Dr. Chad Epps, Ms. Penni Watts, Dr. Majorie White.
