FACILITATOR SIMULATION DAY
Level: Advanced Practice – (Line worker, Supervisor, Manager)
Intended Audience: Individuals who are interested in serving in the role as facilitator for Simulation Day. This may include experienced workers, supervisors, Field Advisors, trainers, and facilitators. Participants should have a strong foundation of knowledge and skills in: training and facilitation; coaching; solution focused questions; and appreciative inquiry.
Description of Course: Through a parallel simulation experience, the learners will be equipped with confidence and competence to facilitate simulations, specifically how to: create a safe learning environment; guide the Simulation Learning Processes with powerful questions; interweave applicable learning objectives, framework, values, principles into the learning processes; guide small groups of learners during their simulation interviews of family members; and de-brief the learners individually and as a group to highlight lessons learned and opportunities to improve practice.
- The learner will be able to comprehensively describe the purpose, role, and learning processes of a Simulation Facilitator.
- Through simulation, the learner will demonstrate proficiency in facilitation skills including advanced utilization of appreciative inquiry, powerful solution focused, strength-based and open ended questions, reflection and reframing to create and sustain a safe learning environment and guide the learners through the simulation learning processes.
- Through simulation the learner will demonstrate proficiency in interweaving the specific learning objectives from the applicable curricula.
- Through simulation the learner will demonstrate the ability to formulate powerful questions to emphasize a point when a teachable moment arises.
