A debrief presents a unique opportunity for a “purposeful, structured period of reflection, discussion, and feedback” (Riley, p.155). A simulation debrief, in particular, encompasses certain fundamental components that guide learners towards obtaining important benefits from their simulation experiences.
Here, we'll explore three of these fundamentals: recollection, reflection, and review.
The goals of debriefing are to look back on actions taken and engage in reflective conversations so understanding and transformative learning may occur. An effective center management tool can facilitate a simulation debrief, turning the after-action review into the valuable and conducive learning session it is meant to be.
A successful debrief provides teams with an efficient way to learn and improve. You could say that a winning debrief accelerates learning and solidifies training.
