This course will focus on the application of simulation evaluation and assessment concepts.
During the asynchronous preparatory work learners will review the following: the Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice for simulation evaluation and assessment; evaluation and assessment tools for faculty, simulation-based experiences, learners, and simulation programs; and various resources to facilitate understanding of concepts discussed during the synchronous session.
During the online synchronous session, learners will work in groups to: utilize evaluation methods for faculty, simulation-based experiences, learners, and simulation programs; discuss measurement validity, reliability, bias and generalizability of tools; determine an approach for evaluating psychomotor skills competency; and develop evaluation data analysis application plans
Are you a simulation novice? We recommend you start with the Foundation Courses to build a strong portfolio in simulation education best practices. It is recommended that participants have prior foundational knowledge and experience with simulation pedagogy before enrolling in the Deeper Dive Courses.
By the end of the session, participants will:
1. Distinguish between formative, summative and high stakes evaluation and assessment methodologies as applied to simulation.
2. Apply an appropriate evaluation and assessment method for faculty, simulation-based experiences, learners/participants, and/or a simulation program.
The National League for Nursing (NLN) Simulation Innovation Resource Center (SIRC) presents a series of reimagined, virtual courses designed to offer professional development in simulation education. This course has been designed as a virtual, synchronous experience, with expert simulation educator facilitation. Approximately 1 hour of preparatory work may be required prior to attending the synchronous session. Course-related content will be accessible for 3 weeks. Nursing education continues to evolve to meet the challenges learners face when developing their thinking skills and translating them into action, within the context of patient care. Simulation-based education consists of a wide collection of teaching strategies, underpinned by theory and evidence, that aim to support learners in their emergence as competent and caring clinicians. Developing, implementing and evaluating immersive and evidence-based simulation experiences for learners require that nurse educators develop a highly specialized skill set in the art and science of dialogue, teaching pedagogy and psychological safety.
