Abstract: The aim of this study was to explore the learning environment for robotic simulation and the potential of makerspace to contribute to professional practice and ongoing professional development for students and educators. Empirically, we base our suggestions on experience of simulation-based training implemented in the Stan Institute of robotic surgery training in the city of Nancy, France. Based on the results obtained from this study, the makerspace approach was identified as a promising solution for students and trainers to overcome challenges in relation to skill acquisition and assessment of student competencies in a multimodal technological environment.

Keywords: robotic surgery; simulation; makerspace; training; innovation; technology; aviation; professional development.
