This is fasicianting talk by Dr. Richard E. Miller, Professor of English  about  humanities, technology, English learning, writing.  Don’t forget the part 2.

Education and Jean Piaget

The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, and not accept, everything they are offered. – Jean Piaget

High-stake Clinical Skill Assessment

One example of using medication simulation for clinician skill assessment by NBOME which includign both physical exam, history taking and communications, professionalism, etc.  This allow the examination conducted in a controlled simulation environment without any risk to patients.

Simulation Education and Assessment

It is important to recognize the difference between formative assessment and summative assessment. Simulation based education activity always involve some forms of assessment. Those assessments are normally not happened at same physical location. During scenario based course, the debriefing session lead by the instructor gives formative assessment to the learner (a in process assessment with PDSA context). The clinical based assessment (eg. checklist ) is a form summative assessment. For learner, it will give their direction what skill they need to improve by more exercise/practice.  For instructor, it will help to guide the improvement of the instruction and course development.  There is need to distinguish the difference between assessment of education activity itself and assessment of individual learner (clinical sill).

Simulation: Tranformation of Learning

“Adding wings to caterpillars does not create butterflies–it creates awkward and dysfunctional caterpillars. Butterflies are created through transformation.” by Stephanie Pace Marshall, an educator and the founding president of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy.

Mr. Bean – CPR

How to learn CPR? How could simulation play a role in medical education ?

Light bulb is not just electronic candle. Refrigerator is not just ice cellar with electricity. iPhone is not just phone+ MP3.

As medical simulation is not just moving medical eduction from ICU to Simulation center.
