Workshops – Content

Workshops are either 1- or 2-day events.

They can be constructed in ‘mix-and-match’ patterns to fit the recipients’ needs. Typically these workshops concentrate on creating Virtual Patients for use in medicine and healthcare, though the processes described could be applied to any competency-based discipline.

Typically workshops cover some or all of the following areas:

  • Descriptions of Virtual Patients and what they can offer teachers and students on medicine and healthcare courses
  • Tuition in Virtual Patient authoring and hands-on creation of Virtual Patients
  • Key messages and rules in the creation of viable options and consequences
  • Different uses for Virtual Patients in learning and teaching
  • Training the trainers: how to pass on these development skills to other academic staff
  • Curriculum implementation options and adoption strategies
