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 education roles or as prelearning before face to face sessions. Additionally the elearning modules can be used together as prelearning for an introductory level faculty educational focussed session.

The recently developed Simulation-based Education Design Toolkit features videos and developmental resources including the Integrated Simulation and Technology Enhanced Learning (ISTEL) Design Framework worksheet, example scenarios and workshop activity cards. These resources promote discussion around inclusivity, scalability and sustainability of simulation and technology enhanced learning in healthcare. Learning is consolidated through the completion of exercises and reflections contained in an editable and printable workbook, which may be used as evidence of continued professional development (CPD).

In addition to the 6 modules within the programme, a face to face session is delivered to develop skills however the modules may be used to support other relevant sessions.
