CANCELLED: International Conference on Analyzing and advancing simulations for professional learning (SimPro2020)


The conference brings together practice-oriented research on simulation-based training from three different domains: medicine, maritime navigation, and police education. In their talks, the conference keynotes discuss the theoretical underpinnings of professional learning in simulated environments, putting focus on embodied actions with different artefacts during simulation as well as the importance of language and social interaction for reflecting on simulation in post-simulation debriefings.

Today the advantages of simulations for developing the skills necessary for effective professional work and promoting safety are broadly acknowledged. However, there is less consensus on the significance of authenticity and reflection as drivers for successful outcomes. Whilst much effort is devoted to study the effects of the simulation intervention, that is assumed to cause changes, the situation itself is largely dismissed. Consequently, the practice of simulation is ¿black boxed¿ which implies a need for more in-depth knowledge on the process of learning and the conditions necessary for students to develop their professional knowledge. The aim of the conference is to ¿open the black box¿ of practice and direct the analytical focus to what actually takes place when people are training together and reflect on simulations.
