Abstract

This article discusses using wikis as a teaching strategy for follow-up debriefing after students participated in human patient simulator activities. Wiki tools assist students in collaborating, sharing, creating, and editing documents that reinforce learning developed during simulation. Students are actively engaged in the learning process by sharing information and experiences obtained in simulation scenarios. The use of a wiki enhances debriefing reflection. Wikis provide students with a written document to answer questions, discuss content, and develop notes and study guides after a classroom simulation activity.
