Simulation, an innovative active learning strategy, will be explored as a way to facilitate collaboration, demonstrate knowledge and apply new skills in a controlled classroom environment. Using video clips from an inter-professional simulation between social work and nursing students at Park University, Dr. Radohl will offer step-by-step instructions on how to facilitate a simulation and provide resources to learn more about the practice.
