“Debriefings” are the developmental conversations that take place after real or simulated work. A specialized form of feedback, debriefing has a substantial evidence-base, particularly in healthcare simulation. This chapter explores how the healthcare simulation debriefing can inform feedback in higher education. The impact of debriefing may stem from: (1) its embedded nature with the entire learning activity and (2) the development of a culture which encourages learner-centred values, productive tensions and lifelong development. Valuable debriefing approaches that improve learning are identified and analysed, alongside their implication for feedback practices.
