To explore the potential of using simulation in new ways, it is time to think "outside the lab." To do this, the authors expanded the use of case-study simulations by broadcasting them to classrooms where didactic content could be reinforced with simulation content. Advantages included students' active classroom engagement, simultaneously sharing simulations with many students, modeling students' thinking in clinical situations, and connecting theory to practice.
