In this course participants advance their roleas as facilitators by immersion Into real-world situations that both challenge and expand their application of simulation teaching strategies. Emphasis is placed on developing the skills necessary for designing and planning a simulation experience as well as addressing challenges that occur as the experience unfolds. Participants will have the opportunity to formulate a professional development plan individualized to their needs.
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. Demonstrate essential skills in preparing simulation based learning experiences.
2. Apply the role of the facilitator to unique challenges that arise during simulation based learning experiences.
3. Create a plan for ongoing professional development based on the standards of the simulation facilitator role.
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.
