SEATS ARE LIMITED

In an effort to keep the level of interaction between the presenters and audience at a manageable level, there are only a small amount of openings available. Please register if you are planning to attend, interact, and remain engaged during the event.

About the Seminar:

This training will be comprised of several educational activities, in a virtual workshop format, that educate participants how to teach effectively with simulation using a variety of innovative technologies and virtual approaches. The training will cover pedagogical approaches, simulation scenario design methods, and implementation strategies. The training will review several simulation resources to assist faculty when developing and integrating simulation scenarios within the curriculum.

Learning Outcomes
By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the key pedagogical approaches and concepts in simulation
  • Design and write a simulation scenario and plan for curricular implementation
  • Facilitate a complex simulation scenario from prebriefing to debriefing using virtual technology
  • Discuss how to evaluate outcomes using simulation faculty when developing and integrating simulation scenarios within the curriculum

  • Facilitators:

    Dr. Elisabeth McGee, PhD, DPT, MOT, CHSE

    Director of Simulation Education and CICP Operations at USAHS

    Dr. Elisabeth McGee began her career as a physical and occupational therapist. She joined USAHS in 2005 and is based on the Saint Augustine, FL campus. She currently serves as Director of Simulation Education and CICP Operations. She has experience in simulation, educational technology, academia, and clinical practice.

    She previously served as the Vice Chair for the Florida Healthcare Simulation Alliance Affinity Group through the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. She has served on several university committees including the Innovation Steering Committee, Transformational Steering Committee, the Faculty Development Committee, and the Technology Steering Committee. She has participated in key educational technology initiatives that revolve around effective simulated learning environments, online learning platforms, educational technology pilot processes, 3D printing, robotics, and virtual reality. She is currently pursuing her PhD in Educational Technology which has a strong focus in simulated learning, innovation, and multimedia learning.

    Emily Frank, OTD, MS, OTR

    Manager of Simulation Education and Innovative Initiatives at USAHS

    Dr. Emily Frank completed her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Minor in Business. She then received her MS and Doctorate in Occupational Therapy at the University of Illinois at Chicago and is currently pursuing a PhD in Health Education and Promotion at Walden University. Her research interests include clinician burnout, workplace stress, and resiliency among healthcare workers. Throughout her clinical career she has worked in a variety of adult settings including inpatient rehabilitation, acute care/ICU, and home health therapy.

    Dr. Frank served as full time occupational therapy faculty at The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) for three years prior to joining the USAHS Center for Innovative Clinical Practice (CICP) team as the Manager of Simulation Education and Innovation Initiatives. She currently assists in providing leadership and coordination for the integration of simulation approaches across the USAHS program curriculum, including interprofessional education initiatives. She works collaboratively with the CICIP team to develop educationally impactful simulation events using media-rich content that aligns with institutional, program, and course objectives.
