Stream: Supporting Teaching, Learning and Student Success
Location: 518

This panel will present examples of innovative simulation-based education models currently in use in the college system. We will touch on the design approach and integration into educational programs as well as how faculty and students are supported while using these learning and training modalities. The panel will also provide insights into the value of simulation-based education as an effective method to enhance student competencies. Finally, the panel will reflect on how simulation-based education is becoming a must-have tool to address today’s labour market challenges such as labour shortages and skill gaps.
