During these challenging times, we are aware that great work by the simulation technician community has assisted or helped lead alternative ways to support delivery of simulation-based education and training in many different settings.

We are seeing adaptation and innovation everywhere, but we need to identify and understand what works best, what has failed, and what has been learned over this period.

So, the plan is to work together; sharing learning, celebrating achievements and capturing the detail, so that cohesion and consistency can be delivered for the benefit of both faculty members and learners alike.

Health Education England’s Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team, in conjunction with the Association of Simulated Practice in Healthcare (ASPiH), wish to develop a collection of short ‘How to...’ guides that describe the innovations and adaptations that you have helped introduce or apply to your work. Examples might include the different methods you have found to stream, capture, share and make remote sessions interactive and experiential. The main question is, how have you responded to and proactively offered solutions to the challenges we have faced?

The collection of guides will explain how other people could apply the technology and technical solutions you are using. The intention is to collate a range of technical solutions that can be aligned to existing or new learning and training resources that will also be made available through the Learning Hub, located HERE.

If you would like to contribute further, perhaps by reviewing contributions, please contact Andy, Mark and Sam at: [email protected]


Professional registration for simulation technicians

For a technician working in simulation, professional registration proves their competence, ability and integrity. The Science Council's registers uphold and recognise high standards of professional practice by technicians

In October 2016 ASPiH was accepted by the Science Council as a full member organisation and, as a direct result, ASPiH is now recognised as the professional body for simulation technicians and technologists.

Please note - you must hold a professional body membership to apply to the Science Council
