Title : “Functional Task Alignment”
The Article :
As simulation has matured as a specialty, our thinking around ‘fidelity’ has grown too. While many of us remain quite concerned about realism and achieving psychological immersion from our participants, this article from Hamstra in 2014 challenges that notion and introduces a relatively new term : ‘functional task alignment’.
We invite you to explore the article and consider just how important realism is to you, and let us know whether this article challenged your preconceptions!
