Using the Constructivist's Learning Theory, we will discuss the world of simulations and how they can be used as a teaching strategy in the educational setting. Simulations, defined as an activity or event replicating real world practice, will be discussed highlighting this type of pedagogy's purposes, design features, and ways to utilize this teaching strategy in your classroom, laboratory, or in a clinical education setting.

Simulation pedagogy is a type of experiential, immersive learning that allow students to apply their knowledge and skills in a safe, non-threatening environment followed by a debriefing facilitated by the instructor. The debriefing, an evidence-based practice, is typically the forum where learners connect the dots and begin to understand complex concepts, relationships, and difficult phenomena. Facilitated by Pam Jeffries, Professor of Nursing, Vice Provost, Digital Initiatives, Johns Hopkins University
