Tips For Running Lab Scenarios on EMS 1

Have you ever run a lab scenario, whether in an initial education class or for continuing education, that just went out of control? Perhaps it was done on the fly and one decision by the team derailed the scenario from the direction you had in mind. Perhaps some equipment failed or an actor went off script. Then there’s giving feedback afterwards.

Over at EMS 1 I wrote an article with 10 Tips To Maximize Learning In Lab Scenarios, which includes about how to set clear learning objectives before a simulation scenario, creating an environment where learners feel safe, how to build contingency plans if the scenario goes off track, and how to deliver feedback after the scenario. Check it out and let me know what you think.
