CAN-SIM ONLINE VIRTUAL SIMULATION GAME DESIGN WORKSHOPS 

Our first online virtual simulation game (VSG) design workshops were a big success. Participants experienced writing learning outcomes and assessment rubrics, developing decision point maps with rationale, writing filming scripts, filming over zoom, filming in the simulation lab, and assembling video clips using the CAN-Sim VSG template. Four new VSGs were created: (1) faculty development for virtual debriefing; (2) communication in a community health clinic; (3) faculty development for student failing; and (4) nonparenteral medication administration.

NEXT WORKSHOP: Oct 28-Nov 2, 2020

CASN – Canadian Simulation Education Certification

The Simulation Certification Program fosters excellence in nursing education in Canada through faculty development in simulation-based pedagogy, practices, and technologies. The program prepares nurse educators to address a broad complement of practice learning needs and the full range of simulation typologies.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Simulation Certification Program encompasses four modules, each offered once per calendar year. Although the given sequence is recommended, modules may be taken in any order and over the course of two years. Every module culminates in a submitted assignment and a multiple-choice exam. Upon successful completion of all four modules, participants will be prepared to write the national certification exam to achieve the Canadian Certified Simulation Nurse Educator (CCSNE) designation.

Audience: Nurse educators using simulation in nursing education programs

Delivery: Online (Adobe Connect & Moodle)

Timeframe: Modules are 7-8 weeks

MODULES

Module 1: Theory and Design – next offering in January 2021  

Module 2: Facilitation – next offering in spring 2021

Module 3: Interprofessional Education – next offering in summer 2021

Module 4: Evaluation and Scholarship – next offering in fall  2020
