Designing Human Factors into Simulation Scenarios

Speakers: Dr Peter Dieckmann and Dr Stefan Gisin
Date: 2​ November 201​7 (Thu)  | Time: 1400 - 1530
LocationAcademia, Level 2, L2-S3 & L2-S​4
Workshop Level: Intermedia​​te​ to Advanced

How to set up scenarios that help in creating human-factors oriented learning opportunities? Typically, simulation scenarios are designed around the technical/medical issues involved (e.g. treating anaphylaxis). 

The workshop sets the focus on designing and implementing scenarios that focuses on human factor issues (e.g. challenges in speaking up, avoiding fixation errors). Participants will discuss features of scenarios that would allow them to create learning opportunities around non-technical skills (NTS).
Learning Objectives:
  1. Describe strategies to design human-factors issues into scenarios.
  2. Discuss the rationale of creating and using obstacles for participants as a learning opportunity.
  3. Describe two ideas for scenarios that can be applied in the participants’ own settings.​
