I found the course easy to follow and fit in to a busy work schedule. It gave me insight in how to incorporate simulation into my teaching and the importance of following standards of best practice.
This was a great course to familiarize myself to the process of simulation. I appreciate all the details and components of the process that help to make simulation such a great learning methodology.

I was thrown off by: 1) not being able to locate the attachments that were said in the videos; 2) distracted with poor sentence structure on some answers and spelling errors; 3) I took notes as I went and found a lot of the questions were not directly covered in the videos - I understand critical thinking but if not experienced, how can you relate? 4) No postings to review/reflect on when asked.
I enjoyed this educational experience. After completing, I have utmost respect for the faculty who are improving the simulation offered at our institution. I wish I had this training earlier so that I could be more supportive of their efforts.
I struggled with how to apply this in-depth training to my on-line virtual simulation course. I have identified need to work on participant evaluation.
Thank YOU for this opportunity to LEARN!

The course provides an excellent overview of simulation in the health professions. The focus is primarily on manikin-based and SP- based simulation and it does not address emerging technologies such as VR or AR. However, it focuses on the theoretical foundations of simulation in such a way that one could readily apply the information obtained to a VR or AR setting. The discussion prompts are good but clearly assume some degree of practical experience with simulation. This is at odds with the assumption that the course is a basic/introductory level course.

An excellent overview of the many levels of running an evidence-based simulation program. However, several of the links ended up in a page that no longer existed and the videos went very fast, causing me to go back to see the reference pages and re-listen to the recommended websites given at the end of a presentation. The different instructors brought a range of expertise that was much appreciated and I will be able to use this in my own practice; especially the debriefing section.

Overall like the course and the ground work it formed for starting up a simulation center. However, I would have appreciated having the documents referenced to read prior to the session to have been embedded in the course resources so that I knew exactly what websites or articles to read. I was able to use a search engine to find very similar documents which provided the required information but it did not follow or fully support the lectures or quizes.

I enjoyed the course and hearing from the experts in their fields. SImulation has so many topics, I don't think Standardized Patients needed it's own module. It might have been incorporated within another module. There should be contact hours upon completion.

The information and tools provided background for my learning. I expected to have more videos of the debriefing process to show ways to debrief that could expand my thinking and application process. All areas were applicable to learning about simulation.

I learned and a lot and I feel like this is a good starting point for people who are trying to learn about how to function in a simulation lab. Some of the links to resources are broken (especially in week 2) which is why I gave the program only 4 stars.

Helpful course for getting a more in-depth understanding of simulations and the bodies that govern best practice. However, some quizzes had typos and the questions were difficult to understand and poorly written.

This course provides links to resources and offers many options on best practices. I am in a small community college setting and was hoping for a more consise template for building our sim program.

Excellent course by top notch nursing professionals and experts in clinical simulations. I highly recommend for all level learners. Definitely worth the time and effort to complete the modules.

This course was truly informational and comprehensive regarding simulation. The only comment I have is that some of the information is repetitive from one speaker to the next.

I wish there was more information related to other clinical simulations than just nursing and medical students. I learned a lot especially with regards to standardized patient development.
