Anyone can benefit from this clinic, but it is designed for those with responsibility for facilitating debriefs, has an interest in facilitating debriefs, or is involved in organisational learning and development, especially:
  • Instructors and simulation designers

Learn how to get the most benefit out of debriefs
Debriefing offers a valuable opportunity to review activities undertaken.
However, all of us can improve our skills at debriefing, and this clinic will teach you the art of success and give you some resources to assist.


Key Learnings

  • The steps to prepare, build, and conduct a debrief
  • Strategies to ensure a debrief actively engages
  • How to make debriefs a challenging and safe learning environment
  • Using effective techniques (and avoiding some common ineffective ones)
  • Acquire skills to overcome potential barriers that inhibit learning.
  • Strategies to unravel understanding and contrast different perspectives
  • Linking debriefs to organisational learning.
Your learning is supported by purpose built publications so you can understand what research has found and translate key findings into your next debrief.
About the development of the clinic
The clinic was developed as part of the AIIMS Capability Development Roadshow from a research project undertaken for the (former) Bushfires CRC. The clinic was road tested in 2015 around Australia and received very positive participant appraisal.
