SimGOV 'FUTURE READY' Forum
CREATING YOUR SIMULATION EDUCATION AND TRAINING PLAN

Would your government department be ready if a catastrophic incident occurred within a major Australian city?


SimGOV is for federal, state and local government agencies to look at operational risk management and how to apply it to their operations. It is critical for a workplace to provide a safe training environment. SimGOV is an entire government initiative formed with the purpose to discuss the use of simulation and modelling across the public sector, in addition to looking at business continuity and collaborative agency incident response to develop Future Ready agencies. This SimGOV forum is the third in a series of four.

FORMAT
Participants will be working in a team on tables to identify simulation training for the different hypothetical incident plans developed at the March SimGOV Forum. Presenters will introduce participants to simulation training applications and methodologies to apply to their incident.

OUTCOMES
Learn from experts across government and the private sector on simulation and training methodologies.
Get inspired from experts on building a cross agency trained and prepared future ready workforce.
Engage in discussions on success and the lessons learned from implementing simulation.
Take away the tools and strategies to implement and understand the technology to consider.

GAIN KNOWLEDGE
Lunch provides a fantastic opportunity to connect with people in the industry. Build networks with participants and experts to create and maintain momentum. Day One will end with an informal networking event where you can meet Australian simulation experts across industry, government and academia. Day Two will conclude with a collaboration session focused on showcasing outputs from the forum and the Asia Pacific Simulation Alliance partners.

Meet likeminded colleagues and don't forget to share your experience! #SimGOV

PRESENTERS

Educational and Training Continuum Design: Choosing the Right Approaches, Methods and Media

Developing people to meet complex organisational outcomes in a cost effective manner requires fully integrated, thoughtfully designed training continua that draw on analysis of desired organisational outputs (tasks/activities), organisational human resource capability requirements (what the humans need to know/be able to do), organisational human resource capability (what the humans know and can do) and knowledge/skill level delineation (where and when along the continuum learning interventions occur and why).
Ian Walker Lieutenant Commander, Royal Australian Navy
Ian is responsible for developing training solutions for the RAN’s major ship building projects. He has two decades experience in the design, development, implementation and evaluation of training programs in civil and defence contexts. Ian holds a M. Bus and is a member of the Australian Institute of Training Developers (AITD).

Communicating in a Crisis: Strategies for Addressing Team Communication Skills in Simulation-Based Learning
When working in complex, dynamic and stressful situations people make mistakes. Whilst some of these mistakes relate to technical skills, it is the non-technical skills (such as communication, leadership, decision-making, prioritisation, and task management) that can have the greatest impact. In industries such as transport and healthcare there are reports that between 50-80% of incidents or adverse events were at least partly caused by communication failures of some kind. During this workshop participants will develop strategies for addressing team communication skills into their simulation-based learning.
Kirsty Freeman, Simulation Education Coordinator, WA Country Health Service
Kirsty has specialised in simulation based education and research since 2008. With a thorough understanding of contemporary issues around simulation, at both a national and international level, she currently consult to a variety of industries on the use of simulation in education, assessment, research and systems testing. Within the healthcare context Kirsty has worked across a variety of disciplines including medicine, nursing, allied health and paramedicine, and have extensive experience in providing simulation-based education to undergraduate healthcare students, through to experienced healthcare providers.

Experiential Learning and Designing Training Systems Architectures to Prepare Combatants for Lethal Force Encounters
Training enablers (such as ranges, simulators, target systems, combat effects, training munitions and Force on Force enablers) must be linked to a higher level training need or risk being sub-optimal. However, training needs analysis often adopts a “process-based” approach to learning rather than an experiential method to prepare “pre-combat veterans”. Further, post-design trade-offs occur when the enablers are not designed together under a systems architecture. This presentation describes the systems architecture for the Small Team Integrated Combat Training System, and draws on modern understanding of how to develop pre-combat veterans via an experiential learning model.
Major Dan Harrison, Staff Officer Training Support Systems, Land Simulation Program: Land Capability Division, Army Headquarters
Major Harrison is a CTMC graduate and works in Army Simulation Program. Previously a Combat Team Commander in Afghanistan, and an exchange Instructor at the UK Infantry Battle School, he has co-published with the University of Newcastle on the use of Free Roam VR and cognitive load in combat simulation. He is currently responsible for the modernisation of the Land Target System and Small Team Training Areas and Ranges.
