11th Annual Center for Immersive and Simulation-based Learning (CISL) Symposium
2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s famous novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. There is a world-wide effort this year to commemorate this event through a variety of scholarly and artistic media exploring diverse concepts triggered by general themes of the book. One theme is about the “creation” of “creatures” or “monsters” in partial imitation of human beings. In healthcare simulation, we create (designers, manufacturers) and/or use (instructors; participants) real or virtual artifacts that are meant to be imitations of humans in one fashion or another. This year’s keynote speaker, David Gaba, MD, Associate Dean for Immersive and Simulation-based Learning, will present on “Healthcare Simulation – What is a Monster?". This talk will explore some of the issues raised by such creation and use, including the reaction of participants and lay persons to our simulation “mannequins”; and the emotional and philosophical “meaning” we attach to these creations as we use them to try to improve the quality and safety of healthcare.
Join us also for a series of Ignite-style presentations showcasing the work that our colleagues have been doing in simulation-based research and for our afternoon workshops on “The Fiends of Fidelity”, exploring the variety of ways immersive learning exercises can be used to augment fidelity.
