Simulation Case-Based Learning: Using Technology to Provoke Engagement

Large class activities are typically used for unidirectional distribution of information from an instructor to students. Despite the ease of this type of instruction, student engagement with the material is often minimal or lacking. At Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, we have developed an innovative approach to teaching called simulation case-based learning, which adapts typical case-based learning approaches and integrates with additional interactive technologies. As the education session and the simulation scenario unfold, students work in small groups and engage with material to synthesize and apply previous content to a new clinical scenario. This integrative approach allows for an inclusive learning environment where all learners are able to solve problems and apply knowledge. Facilitated discussion between questions ensures that all students progress through the case. The simulated environment brings learning to life and requires students to actively retrieve previously learned material to apply to a new situation. This presentation will describe the features of this new, innovative approach to learning described as simulation case-based learning and will provide the participants an opportunity to experience the active learning environment.

My primary interests center around the use of simulation as a method of instruction. Specifically, I am interested in curriculum development, assessment of students, and the development of novel teaching strategies.
