Put the student at the centre of learning by providing opportunities to develop their own practice and to work towards becoming independent, reflective and professional practitioners.
Providing high-quality simulated virtual placements is achievable by addressing three key issues:
When students are agents in their learning, that is, when they play an active role in deciding what and how they will learn, they tend to show greater motivation to learn and are more likely to define objectives for their learning.
These students are also more likely to have “learned how to learn” – an invaluable skill that they can and will use throughout their lives.
The introduction of Simulated placements for Undergraduate programmes has been reported as having "…reduced pressure on placement areas and enhanced student satisfaction".
Simulated learning has seen dramatic improvements in the confidence and knowledge that students take to their clinical placements.
Virtual simulation reduce the human resource required of in-person simulation. As such, simulation has been used to replace practice hours.
"…basic competence training meaning that students enter their clinical placement with a higher degree of confidence in their skills and ability with students reporting reduced anxiety when beginning placements after using the software".
