1) Presenter: Nancy McNaughton, University of Toronto, Canada
Topic: ‘Ethics of simulation practice’
Date: Wednesday 18 November 2015
Time: 1400 UK/GMT
Education is an ethical undertaking and as such requires conversations about the value of different methodologies and equally the potential effects that approaches like live simulation may have on learner and teacher alike. Ethics in this context is “related to a play of complexity that binds the cognitive to the emotional, the intellectual to the affective and connects them all to a socially embedded ethics of sustainability. (Braidotti, 2006). Attendant psychological risks to identity and unintended emotional effects need to be taken into account when planning, designing and implementing simulation based educational, research and assessment activities.
