Title: Keeping it Real: Use of Simulation for Communication Skill Development for Student Learning, Engagement, and Interaction
Presenter: Lea Kaploun, Ph.D., CCC/SLP, Associate Professor/Clinical Supervisor, Department of Speech-Language Pathology, Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences
Description: Participants will learn the steps to creating a video simulation activity where students watch a video of a scenario they may encounter, in order to use problem-solving and self-reflection in skill development. Discussion of components of the activity, including prebriefing, instruction, simulation, and debriefing will support instructors in preparation of their own activities. Participation in a simulation activity and reflection on the experience, its benefits, and its challenges will prepare instructors for some issues that may arise in their own work. Participants will then formulate a plan for a video simulation activity involving content that they want to present to their students and using a checklist to include components discussed.
