Facilitator: Exploring Roles in Simulation Delivery

Overview of Course

This course uncovers the knowledge, skills and abilities that support a simulation facilitator in delivering a successful learning experience.  Becoming a simulation facilitator requires the development of a subset of roles that are leveraged at various phases of the entire simulation experience, to include, prebriefer, debriefer, evaluator, mentor.  Participants will also explore how a facilitator prepares before, responds during and reflects after each experience.  


Course Objectives: 

By the end of the session, participants will: 

1. Describe the Facilitator's Role in Creating the Simulation Experience. 

2. Apply facilitator roles and responsibilities to the planning of a simulation experience "before". 

3. Apply facilitator roles and responsibilities to the implementation of a simulation experience "during".

4. Apply facilitator roles and responsibilities the general evaluation and/or reflection of the simulation experience "after and beyond". 


Benefits of SIRC Courses

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, asynchronous, and self-paced experience. Learners have access to these courses for 1 year.  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.
