We commenced the planning sessions in the Discipline of Nursing and I was the sounding board, facilitator, and learning designer. Sheila was the subject matter expert and we spent many hours developing scenarios as this immersive learning experience took shape. It was truly authentic curriculum development and at times we needed breaks to release the adrenaline building up as Sheila re-lived Bali, where she was awarded the Order of Australia medal for her nursing work. One highlight was when I “sold” Channel Nine the idea of providing free of charge video clips of simulated newsbreaks, so realistic they had to be labeled “training purposes” to avoid the problem “War of the Worlds” had in 1938.
At the time CLPD was working with Professor Holger Maier of School of Civil Environmental and Mining Engineering, who was further developing and running the nationally awarded Mekong eSim. Sheila adapted some of the model of the Mekong role-play, added scenarios and Through the Fire a Disaster Downunder eSim was born.
