Virtual Workshops

Our virtual workshops are shorter engagements focusing on a specific topic. Workshops are led by expert faculty where they will provide live instruction and practical experience on specific topics or focus areas followed by peer-to-peer learning and discussion. We don't currently have any open workshops on our schedule, but see below for an example of our previous options:

Video-Triggered Teamwork Training
Train-the-Trainer Simulation in a Virtual Environment

September 15, 2020 | 12:00 - 1:30 pm CT

Effective teamwork and communication doesn’t happen automatically – the best health care professionals are mindful of their own behavior and that of others. Currently available simulation-based education approaches are effective, but also have substantial barriers to adoption such as time away from work to conduct facilitator training, time to conduct training and access to specialized simulation equipment.

We have developed, in partnership with Ariadne Labs, a training framework that is designed to be a practical method of simulation-based training in essential teamwork skills. This tool provides an easy-to-use, out-of-the-box, resource-light solution. The training was originally intended to be facilitated in-person but due to the increased demand for virtual training, the materials have been adapted to fit the online environment.

In this 90-minute virtual workshop on September 15 at 12:00 pm CT, we will share the framework and model how to facilitate the training so participants can go through the user experience. Following the instruction, best practices will be identified when facilitating the training virtually.
