With the assistance of a trained debriefer, participants in simulations and other highly emotional occurrences need to explore their own points of view (frames), actions, and results that comprised the experience. Engaging in collaborative, off-line reflection heightens debriefers’ awareness of how their own and others’ undiscovered frames may produce unwanted consequences, particularly during debriefing. This practice also heightens debriefers’ awareness of their own idiosyncratic responses and frames in real time. This awareness allows debriefers to better facilitate a learning conversation. Such conversations can lead to positive behavioral changes among participants with resulting improvement in team communication and processes.
This is a 2-day course for a maximum of 15 participants. The first day is comprised of lecture and interactive exercises that occur in the didactic space. In the last hour the group is divided into 2-3 groups and separated to develop learning objectives and case scenarios.
For day 2 the 2-3 scenarios developed on Day 1 are run, followed by debriefing practice, and debriefing of the student facilitators. There are 3 short didactics on Day 2.
Upon completion of this course, participants will have the beginning skill set necessary to:
On-going assessment of debriefers' performance will be done by core Jump Sim faculty using a standardized tool. In addition, each debriefer's participant ratings and related comments will be tracked and evaluated for growth.
