Keynote and invited speakers

Keynote speakers

Peter Dieckmann is a psychologist and currently head of research at the Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation (CAMES). He is a past president of the Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM). Dieckmann is associate editor of the journal “Simulation in Healthcare”, and an editorial board member of “Clinical Simulation in Nursing”. Dieckmann has worked with simulation since 1999, focusing on simulation in healthcare since 2001, and received his PhD with a thesis on simulation in Anaesthesia in 2005. Like few other researchers in the field, Dieckmann have made significant contributions towards a better understanding of how to use simulation for education, training and research. He is involved in training simulator instructors, both through teaching courses and workshops around the world, as well as through the production of training materials.

Sissel Eikeland Husebø is professor at Department of Health Studies, University of Stavanger, Norway and Department of Surgery, Stavanger University Hospital, Norway. Eikeland Husebø has a background as an intensive care nurse in a wide range of acute care clinical settings, and years of experience in designing, implementing and facilitating simulation-based learning in nursing and healthcare from Stavanger Acute Medicine Foundation for Education and Research (SAFER). Her research is focused on interaction analyses of simulation in nursing and healthcare, clinical leadership and teamwork in hospitals, resuscitation, counselling, quality and safety in healthcare.

Roger Säljö is senior professor of education and educational psychology at Department of Education, Communication and Learning, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Säljö was director of LinCS (The Linneus Centre for Research on Learning, Interaction and Mediated Communication in Contemporary Society) and president of the European Association of Research on Learning and Instruction. He is one of the founding editors of the journal Learning, Culture and Social Interaction. Through his research, Säljö made extensive contributions to the learning sciences, in particular in advancing the socio-cultural perspective on learning and knowledge on how we acquire competence and skills in a socially and technically complex society.

Invited presenters

Cecilia Escher is a medical doctor and senior consultant in anesthesiology and intensive care at Karolinska University Hospital, Huddinge, Sweden. She is certified instructor on advanced patient simulation, and vice manager at CAMST Simulator Center, designing and developing simulation-based training for adult and pediatric healthcare. Alongside her clinical work and educational assignments, Escher is a PhD student, writing her thesis on medical simulation.

Torben Nordahl Amorøe is a medical doctor and senior consultant in anesthesiology and intensive care at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden. He is currently head of Simulator Center West which is a center for experiential learning of clinical practices for healthcare students and professionals. Alongside his clinical work, Nordahl Amorøe is also a PhD student at Department of Medicine, writing his thesis on reflective practices for interprofessional learning in post-simulation debriefing.

Elin Nordenström is an educational developer at the unit for Pedagogical Development and Interactive learning at University of Gotheburg. She received her PhD in education in 2019 with a thesis on feedback and instructional guidance in simulation debriefings for healthcare students.

Charlott Sellberg is an assistant professor at Department of Applied IT at University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Sellberg received her PhD in Education in 2018 with a thesis on the instructors’ role for professional learning in simulator-based training for master mariner students. Her current research project concerns the use of simulators for assessment of professional skills and competencies in maritime education and training.

David Sjöberg is an associate professor at Unit of Police Education at Umeå University. Sjöberg received his PhD in 2016, with a thesis on about simulations in police education and what they mean for developing professional knowing. A starting point for Sjöbergs’ studies is that not only the scenario but also the preparation and the debriefing must be included in the analyses. Another premise for Sjöbergs’ work is that activities and individuals cannot be
studied as separate entities. Alongside his research on simulations in police education, Sjöberg is also a merited teacher.

Astrid Camilla Wiig is assistant professor at Department of Humanities, Sports and Educational Science, University of South-Eastern Norway, Norway. She received her PhD in Education in 2019 with a thesis on how knowledge moves across contexts of learning. Wiigs’ research interests include the instructors’ role in digital learning activities, and how to connect different learning practices across setting and practices. Alongside her research, Wiig has years of experience in teaching pedagogy for future maritime instructors, i.e. master students in a maritime management program.
