”On behalf of the Lapland University of Applied Sciences, may I extend a very warm welcome to you to Kemi and Rovaniemi to Nursing Simulation Alive Conference.
Lapland is a focal point for a good life, where you can be proud of yourself, your community, your own and shared milestones in life, as well as ways of doing things. Lapland is a safe and healthy living environment for growth and development. You can live and work in the region and be in the heart of nature at the same time. In Lapland, the pieces of life fall into place. Lapland is peaceful, a place you can always breathe in deeply and feel free from daily stress. The world is near, yet suitably far away.
Simulation has become a widely used educational method among health care professionals and students. The view of learning has changed from individuality to open collaborative learning where the knowledge is created in a group of learners. Should simulation also progress into trialogical learning where simulation enables common knowledge practices? This conference will give you something to consider along with focusing on making simulations authentic and alive.
I hope that you will find new ideas and networks while experiencing the unique atmosphere of Lapland.”
