The purpose of this project is to create an electronic handbook for large-group simulations, collaborating with partners from different organizations. With this handbook, future interprofessional large-group simulations can be planned, executed and evaluated. The objective of this project is, by utilizing and sharing past experiences of large-group simulations team, to provide concrete instructions for designing virtual interprofessional large-group simulations. This handbook is then offered to teaching and education planners in different units of University of Eastern Finland, collaborators, and other working partners.
The designing, execution and evaluation process of this project utilizes student-oriented, research based and working life-oriented approach, utilizing simultaneously the ideology of constant learning.
This handbook will be generated in electronic environment both in Finnish and in English, and after its piloting, the handbook will be freely obtainable and thus benefited by everyone.
