Using a Clinical Simulator System to Improve Teachers’ Learning and Effectiveness
Gilad Cohen-Ynon and Moshe Sharabi
Clinical learning has traditionally been used to train medical students, but is now increasingly used to prepare new teachers. This type of training exposes inexperienced teachers to the professional knowledge and experience of experts in the subject (teaching methods, classroom management, decision making). The learning process usually takes place within a learning community of teachers. These teachers learn through experience, and study their own professional practice – effective ways of transferring knowledge, personal biases that limit them, and professional beliefs and identity. Fourteen elementary school teachers participated in the present study, using a clinical simulator. The findings indicate that all the teachers improved their teaching far more than in any other professional development process in which they have participated.
