ASSET Foundations Course
ASSET Foundations is a two-day course that provides a broad overview of core simulation concepts and principles to novice and intermediate simulation educators.  This interactive and immersive course provides a mix of didactic, small group and simulation-based activities.  By the end of the course, the participants will be able to design and run their own simulation, and feel comfortable facilitating the debriefing session that follows. For more information and upcoming courses, please visit the ASSET Foundations section. 

ASSET Advanced Course
ASSET Advanced is a one-day course for intermediate simulation instructors (ideally with at least 12 months of simulation and debriefing experience) designed to provide advanced debriefing skills and techniques.  Participants will be introduced to common debriefing challenges and pitfalls, including some important ways to avoid them.  Participants will also be introduced to an advanced toolbox of debriefing skills designed to help overcome difficult debriefing situations.  Videos of simulation scenarios will be used as the basis for discussion, debriefing practice and feedback.

ASSET Co-Debriefing Course
The course introduces attendees to the challenges with co-debriefing for simulation-based education. Debriefing with more than one facilitator (co-debriefing) can be either an effective or counter-productive strategy for debriefing. Effective co-debriefing is highly dependent upon a shared strategy for debriefing between co-facilitators. This workshop presents several different strategies for co-debriefing, and offers attendees the opportunity to practice each of these to determine which is the best fit for their simulation programs.

ASSET Peer Coaching Course
ASSET Peer Coaching is a one-day course for intermediate simulation instructors who have experience running simulations with another colleague. Participants will explore how to provide effective feedback to peers and colleagues in a way that is non-threatening and how to seek constructive feedback from colleagues to identify learning gaps in their own practice. By the end of the course the participants will learn techniques to define and describe the benefits of peer coaching; highlight strategies for creating a culture for peer coaching; describe elements of pre-briefing, scenario execution and debriefing performance that can be explored when coaching peers; and apply tools designed to help with peer coaching.
