Clinical educators involved in simulation-based education (SBE) generally enjoy the pedagogical aspects of the job. Rich conversations about curricular design, scenario writing, debriefing techniques and experiential learning theories occur in simulation faculty development programs. But success in SBE also requires effective use of technology, including human patient manikins, audio-visual equipment, App based adjuncts, part task trainers, and virtual reality systems. Increasing complexity and diversity of options for this simulation equipment can make this a daunting task. Some simulation programs will have equipment specialists, but SBE faculty should know the opportunities and limitations of the tech used to support their educational strategies and be able to contribute to technical delivery and troubleshooting. So how can clinician educators learn about their ‘tech’?
