Lecture by: Bridget O'Brien, PhD
Educators design interprofessional simulations to achieve defined learning objectives and core competencies. However, even highly-structured simulations can yield unanticipated, or emergent, learning due to group dynamics and diverse interpretations of the situation by participants. As educators, we face the challenging task of recognizing these unanticipated, but often high-yield, moments for interprofessional learning. In this presentation, Dr. O’Brien will discuss findings from a qualitative study of student learning through interactions during an interprofessional simulated patient exercise. She will share video clips developed through this research and engage the audience in a discussion of the teachable moments identified in the videos.
