About this book

This book offers various ways in which analyzing professional experience and activity in simulation training makes it possible to describe practice-based learning affordances and processes. Research has been conducted in various simulation programs in the domains of healthcare, victim rescue and population protection, involving healthcare workers, firemen, policemen, servicemen, and civil security leaders. "Work-as-done" (/ "training-as-done") in simulation has been analyzed with ergonomics, occupational psychology, and vocational training approaches. The authors describe and discuss theoretical, methodological, and/or practical issues related to practitioner experience and activity in simulation training. The book also provides evidence on the conditions under which lived experience in simulation can foster or hinder learning, and derives appropriate orientations for simulation design and implementation.

About the editors

Dr. Simon Flandin is a Researcher in the CRAFT lab at the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences at the University of Geneva. His research consists of analysing the occupational and training activity of professionals in order to determine the best methods of generating transformations that improve performance, health, and development. His research approach is grounded in French-speaking Ergonomics and in Enaction theory, and his main fieldworks are video and simulation uses in various contexts of vocational education and professional development. Since 2016 his research agenda is polarized by safety and crisis management training. In 2019, he was the first educational scientist to obtain a SNSF (Swiss National Science Foundation) Ambizione Fellowship.

Prof. Christine Vidal-Gomel is a Full Professor of Educational and Training Sciences. She is affiliated with the Centre de Recherche en Éducation de Nantes (CREN) at the University of Nantes (France). Her research approach consists of analyzing the activity and development of professionals from the theoretical and methodological frameworks of French-speaking Ergonomics and Professional Didactics. She works on the design of 'enabling' training situations, integrating professional development and occupational health and safety. She carries out field studies in different domains, such as healthcare, building and civil engineering, and autonomous vehicle driving.

Dr. Raquel Becerril Ortega is an Industrial Engineer and Associated Professor in Educational Sciences in the CIREL laboratory (University of Lille, France). Her work consists of analysing occupational and training activity in order to design and develop adult training courses using simulation. She teaches to both academic and professional audiences. Her main interests are theories of adult learning and training, training design, simulation, and occupational activity analysis. In 2018, she obtained a research Fellowship from the French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology to contribute to a research and development program on simulation training at the University of Santiago, Chile.
