MA in Technology and Simulation in Clinical Practice

This MA is produced in collaboration between the Institute of Education and the London Deanery in support of STeLI and is aimed at clinical practitioners who use simulation and educational technologies to teach and learn clinical practice.

Through reflection on practice, you will explore:

  • teaching and learning with simulation in clinical education
  • how simulation and other technologies impact on work based learning
  • the impact of technology-enhanced learning on team-based clinical practice
  • how to research and evaluate educational technologies in clinical settings

Applications are welcome throughout the year.   Start dates are October, January or April annually and all modules can be taken as short courses. 

The course aims to equip clinical practitioners with the knowledge and understanding to implement the move toward technology and simulation-based learning in clinica settings.  Some of the questions underpinning the course include:

  • How can the use of simulation be evaluated in clinical settings?
  • How does the use of educational technology and simulation affect what is learned about clinical practice?
  • How can simulation enhance interprofessional communication and team-based working?
  • How can theories of learning and teachning contribute to the design of technology-enhanced clinical education?
  • How can the quality of research on simulation and educational technology be evaluated?
  • What ethical issues are raised by the use of simulation as learning resources?
