Getting Started in Simulation-Based Research



A one-day course aimed at those new to simulation-based research, designed to build the essential foundations to allow participants to design, complete and disseminate their own simulation-based research projects.  It is open to all interested individuals, regardless of professional background or simulation experience, although some working knowledge of how immersive simulation is delivered is desirable.  It is likely to be particularly useful for teaching and development fellows and those undertaking simulation and education fellowships.
The course will include an introduction to the various types of simulation-based research, how to formulate a research question, different approaches to data collection and how to disseminate research findings (including journal selection).  There will also be the opportunity for participants to seek individualised feedback on their research proposals through bookable slots near the end of the day – details will follow once bookings are confirmed.
Price – £100
Tea, coffee and lunch will be provided
Course facilitators: Sam Smith, Joanne Kerins, Ailsa Hamilton and Emma Phillips
