Simulation is an educational strategy where elements of the real world are integrated to achieve specific goals relating to learning or evaluation (Arthur, Kable & Levett-Jones, 2010). The aim of simulation is to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and the practical application of the knowledge (Eyikara & Bakara, 2017). In healthcare education, simulation allows for aspects of clinical practice to be reproduced in an authentic way (Jeffries, 2007). It is important to understand that simulation is a teaching strategy and is not simply the utilisation of technology in the learning environment. This chapter will present an overview of simulation, including fidelity, modalities, standards, guidelines and frameworks for simulation, phases of simulation, challenges and general tips.
