About the Simulation Faculty Development programme

These resources are available to assist with Simulation Faculty Development and education. The individual modules can be used on their own to increase knowledge for instance as CPD of those with simulation based learning roles or as pre-learning before face to face sessions. Additionally the e-learning modules can be used together as pre-learning for an introductory level faculty educational focussed session.

About the modules

There are 5 modules within the programme:

Module name Description
Introduction to simulation based learning This is an introduction to simulation based learning either to be used as a standalone session or pre-learning.
Educational theory and practice for simulation based learning This covers key educational theory and practice related to simulation based education.
Delivering the simulation based learning scenario This focuses on facilitation of the simulation.
Debriefing the simulation based learning event This module contains information on debriefing the simulation based learning event.
An introduction to Human Factors and patient safety This is an introduction to Human Factors and e-learning. It covers clinical error cognition and human behaviour. The aim of this module is as pre-reading prior to face to face simulation sessions; it has also been used for induction training. The module is multi-professional in its focus.


In addition, a face to face session is delivered to develop skills however the modules may be used to support other relevant sessions.
