The significance of this monograph is the emphasis on the learners' cognitive functions and their link to the computer-based application while learning with simulation. This perspective is rare within the well-established research on simulation in educational contexts and adds an important conceptual view to mental model theory.
Under Renee's leadership, the Sidra simulation team has also made a difference in improving simulation training locally in Qatar.

Recent research works recommended the practice of the Model Driven Engineering (MDE) in the field of the simulation [2, 3, 4].
Simulation offers the unique ability for students to acquire and develop skills prior to practicing on real patients, thus shortening the learning curve and reducing the risk of harmful errors in the clinical setting (Miller, 2010).
With Discovery Live, the US-based firm wants to make simulation accessible to every engineer in the production chain by 2020, saying that today just one in six uses this type of software.
In order to expand the application field and enhance the versatility, Fluent provides the following interface for users [1]: Fluent/UDF is written based on C language to deal with the nonfixed boundary conditions or dynamic grid computing and other personalized applications; Fluent/Journal is used to record the operation sequence on the Fluent/GUI and then Fluent can be started by the external program including command with Journal parameter, so that simulation task is automatically operated according to the operation sequence in Journal.
The workshops incorporate access to the NLN's Simulation Innovation Resource Center (SIRC; http://sirc.nln.org) online courses, which serve as a foundation for engaging in these immersive and experiential workshops.
Simulation is becoming recognised as an innovative pedagogical approach to clinical training in health, and is growing in popularity.
