Module 4: Evaluation and Scholarship

SOLD OUT – please email us to be put on a waitlist


Module 4 focuses on competencies 5 and 6, which address the post-experience phases of a simulation-based experience. Participants will demonstrate their knowledge of appropriate evaluation of participants and the simulation-based learning activity. They will also show how a nurse educator with expertise in simulation participates and contributes to the larger learning simulation instructor community, both in Canada and globally.

Audience: Nurse educators using simulation in nursing education programs. Note: It is strongly recommended that participants have taken previous modules before taking Module 4. 

Delivery: Online (Zoom & Moodle)

Timeframe: 8 weeks

Please note that participation in all live webinars is a course requirement.
