On our part-time course, you’ll develop the skills to lead the design, development and evaluation of simulation and technology enhanced learning (STEL) in healthcare.
It’s designed for practitioners working in education and health and social care roles. Whichever sector you work in, you’ll share your experiences with fellow students to help broaden your knowledge of how organisations use STEL.
You’ll learn through group tutorials and interactive workshops, with activities ranging from role plays, discussions, presentations and games. Our specialist facilities on-campus include an immersive interactive CAVE environment, simulated ward environments and a simulation flat.
These practical sessions help you to gain a deeper understanding of both curriculum design and evaluation principles, and how they can apply to your practice.
Through the taught units, you’ll critically evaluate STEL methods, from mobile applications, gamification, immersive scenarios to the use of virtual reality. You’ll consider ways to use STEL in practice across health and social care, and how it can help to improve patient safety.
You’ll use your newly acquired knowledge and skills to develop a work-based project unique to your interests, experiences and workplace. This assignment helps you to develop your professional skills, as well as support innovation and development within your workplace.
Experts whose work focuses on simulation-based education lead this course.
The three units on this course all provide 20 credits at Level 7 (masters degree level). You can build up credits and exit with a postgraduate certificate (60 credits) or complete single units as part of your continuing professional development (CPD).
You’ll have the advanced knowledge and understanding to design, implement and evaluate STEL innovations.
These skills will support you in leading improvements in the quality of education and training across a broad range of settings, from education to healthcare.
When you complete PgCert STEL, you’re awarded 60 credits at Level 7 (masters level). You can choose to build on these credits to gain a PgDip (120 credits) or full MSc (180 credits) in a related postgraduate healthcare course.
