Final Lab Scenario Testing 0 R. Sullivan Does anyone have advice on how to run final scenario exams? Our students will be able to return to campus soon and need a final lab scenario exam. Usually we have students respond in pairs to live simulated patients, similar to the IOH registry station. I know NREMT posted information a while ago about how they planned to adjust the IOH station but I can’t find it now. We’re planning to wear PPE, use mannequins, and have them respond alone, but we have not decided yet about whether we should let them verbalize more treatment or lay equipment out for them since they won’t have a partner. I would like to hear what other programs are doing and any advice would be appreciated

Zoom Hacks to Help Move EMS Class Forward. 3 K. McKenna I have created some 360 videos that allow you to look all over the room or environment for your scene size up and creating a general first impression of your patient. You are more than welcome to use any of these videos, I am working on making more videos for more scenarios. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UW7YhM2xzUUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vAK_dBOJkY&t=15shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28fB7SuFycs&t=15sI have also included links I made that they can scan a QR code to see specific things on the scene like pill bottles or the wound. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1y7ULSiGBbzmkpUzHvk_q1X-XZQEMEG40Vb4NetYMHNA/edit?usp=sharing https://docs.google.com/document/d/1M_LeKQcxyf7jjlb5jSUY6ctXEp8J2bTBw3w0nv4fCx4/edit?usp=sharingI have incorporated these elements plus pre-recorded iSimulate vitals and compiled them all into one video that makes for a dynamic scenario.

Using iSimulate with Zoom 3 K. O'Connor Here’s what we did with iSimulate and Zoom. We had two devices in a meeting as cohosts, one pointed towards a scene and the other towards iSimulate. An instructors is with a mannequin or a live patient, and students can tell the what to do based on what they see on the monitor. I know there are other ways to do this, but we’ve had good luck with the monitor next to the scene on the student’s end using this. It would also work with any other rhythm generator. In the pictures my son acted as the instructor and I acted as the student telling him what to do. Take care and stay safe everyone.

Webinar: Emergency Remote Learning in a Crisis Situation 0 N. Reese   Emergency Remote Learning in a Crisis Situation If COVID19 had come along in 2005, or worse, 1995, colleges, universities and training institutions would have been hard pressed to help their students complete their year through remote learning on such short notice. While the transition was remarkably swift, it’s hasn’t been easy, smooth or consistent. In the past month, we have found quick solutions, and going forward we will discover new solutions and fine tune existing ones. Rob Theriault has been teaching online, both synchronously and asynchronously for over 20 years. Rob began “flipping the classroom” in 2000, several years before the term was first coined. In this webinar, Rob will share what he has learned and what he envisions for remote experiential learning in the future.

The Shift to Remote Learning: The Human Element 1 N. Reese Really good article and content to explore. This is the central question on everyone's mind; how will I learn, study and thrive in a digital educational experience. If Y2K brought fears and anxiety about the internet, this Pandemic has catapulted us into the 5th dimension of on-line learning. We are all going to need a digital detox from time to time. Learning modes and styles will remain basically the same. How do you learn? Visual, Auditory, Kinetic experiential; and now full on remote education with a dash of virtual simulation added. It will still be up to the individual, be it an instructor or student who needs to work a program of health and wellness and remain academically fit!
