Simulation Learning


Breckwoldt, Jan; Gruber, Hans; Wittmann, Andreas (2014). Simulation Learning. In: Billett, Stephen; Harteis, Christian; Gruber, Hans. International Handbook of Research in Professional and Practice-based Learning. Heidelberg: Springer, 673-698.

Abstract

An overview is presented of the strengths and limitations of simulation learning, with a particular focus on simulation learning in medicine and health care. We present what simulation learning is about and what the main components of simulations are. The most important theoretical approaches are reviewed which were developed in order to explain why simulation learning is effective. The most prominent best-practice examples of simulation learning applications are presented, and a short overview on research findings concerning simulation learning is given.
