Technology and Simulation
Technology in Teaching

Education is being revolutionized due to expanding scope of technology in the classroom. OUWB and Beaumont Health Systems recognize the importance of this change and the importance of educating all stakeholders in the use of latest relevant teaching technology. The proliferation of social media and technology has changed the way educators teach, how students learn, and the way teachers and students communicate. 

A series of workshops and seminars offered by the CEME under this topic will be lead by experts from the OUWB IT team and is aimed at providing hands-on skills to all the clinical and basic sciences faculty in use of technology used in teaching.  View educational technology modules.

Simulation Based Teaching

Simulation in medical education is widely accepted as a means to learn, practice and advance skills in an environment as close as possible to the real world. Clear advantages of reducing risks at the patient-side and the opportunity to practice in a less stressful environment make simulation attractive to faculty and students alike. 
The Marcia and Eugene Applebaum Surgical Learning Center (SLC) is the perfect place to introduce new skills, practice and polish those skills and challenge those skills with advanced-level scenarios and equipment. Equipped with a variety of task trainers, simulators and mock OR environments, it is capable of low-, mid- and high-level fidelity simulation for educating your audience. 
The Applebaum Surgical Learning Center offers faculty development for those new to the simulation environment, inclusive of an introduction to the equipment as well as the writing learning cues, through debriefing each simulation experience to highlight the key learning elements. Further, the SLC can support faculty who wish to offer advanced simulations with multiple variables and interdisciplinary caregiver teams. 

For more information about programs and resources available at the Marcia and Eugene Applebaum Surgical Learning Center, please contact Diane Schuch-Miller, M.Ed. by phone at 248-898-0907 or via email at [email protected].

Faculty Development

The Marcia and Eugene Applebaum Surgical Learning Center offers a variety of faculty preparation and faculty development courses online. These programs are free of charge and open to all interested in simulation in medical education, but most especially those interested in designing and delivering courses in the Surgical Learning Center.

Self-Study Faculty Development 

Using Simulation in Medical Education

This one-hour course provides an overview of the history of simulation in general, the history of simulation in medicine, and an explanation for why it is effective. Further, this course highlights the various documentation required for courses, workshops, conferences, simulations and case studies in the Surgical Learning Center.

Enroll in the Self-Study Faculty Development Course

Orientation to SimMan Classic

This 30-minute course provides a thorough introduction to the features and functions of SimMan Classic. At the conclusion of this course, you will be able to find SimMan’s pulse, describe procedures and surgical procedures you can perform on SimMan, use the instructor interface, use the patient vitals monitor and explain the simulation environment to your learner audience. 

One-on-One Faculty Development

In addition to the self-study courses listed above, one-on-one faculty development is available. 
For assistance with writing learning objectives, scenario development, learner evaluation, program evaluation and curriculum development, please contact Diane Schuch-Miller, MEd., at (248) 898-0907 or [email protected]
To become familiar with one of the virtual reality or human physiological simulators, please contact Diane Schuch-Miller, MEd., at (248) 898-0907 or Ron Streetman at (248) 898-2514 or [email protected]. We currently have the following simulators:

IRBNet on-line submission system

IRBNet on-line submission system will replace RAM 2.0 for the submission of research projects involving the use of human subjects to be reviewed by the OU Institutional Review Board (IRB).

  • All new applications, modifications to previously approved applications and continuing review applications must be submitted through IRBNet using the appropriate forms. RAM 2.0 will be kept active only to view previously approved applications.

  • Researchers including all key personnel must register with IRBNet to access the IRB applications and required forms, which are located in the Document Library and Forms and Templates on IRBNet.

  • For training, please visit the IRBNet Information on the Human Subjects webpage to access Helpful Links to:
    • Read Me First (Step-by-Step Instructions on using IRBNet)
    • IRBNet New User Registration Energizer
    • IRBNet Researcher Training Energizers 1 & 2
