In Support of Excellence

It's all about the students

Authentic Lesson Design

Ms Jill Clausen, Clinical Lecturer from the School of Nursing, who currently runs the eSim, reports it has now run seven times since 2004, with 85 students immersed in it. Jill reports that student comments have always been positive. However, the best feedback came from Margaret Conaglen, a Christchurch student who was doing the eSim when an earthquake hit in 2010:

“We have lost a home but all my family is fine and we are counting our blessings. I wanted to let you know how often I thought about the “Disaster Down Under eSim” and how incredibly relevant it has been to the situation here at the hospital over the past week. Just about everything covered in the eSim played out here - including rapid patient transfers, mis-communication, gaining extra dressing supplies, sneaky media and staff burn out avoidance. The only difference of course was no burn injuries – just lots of trauma. I have to say our hospital did an amazing job and our ward coped very well.”
