Simulation Excellence

Maximize students' learning experiences with the Simulation Excellence Series

Learn about new simulation standards, simulation learning strategies, how to maximize learner outcomes, and more in the Center for Professional Development and Lifelong Learning's FREE three-part series for educators who use simulation in nursing education.

Mark your calendars now, and join us virtually via Zoom for 90-minute sessions with IU Faculty and Simulation Pedagogy experts Dr. Megan Stuffle, Marian Gilhooly, and Madonna Wilson. These sessions are available at no cost to Indiana University School of Nursing faculty, partners, and graduate students who interact with simulation in their teaching. This includes BSN faculty, MSN faculty, MSN in Nursing Education students, Fairbanks Simulation tech, Kenyan faculty partners, and others.

  • Offered during spring and fall semesters
  • A Certificate of Completion will be issued after the three-part series has been finished.
  • This activity has been approved for ANCC Contact Hours by Indiana University School of Medicine.

Part 3: Simulation Development Workshop

During the third part of the series, join in three sessions all about simulation design. The purpose of the Simulation Development Workshop is for faculty to create or revise a simulation scenario. In the first session, learn about simulation design resources and discuss simulation objectives, learning goals, as well as the types of simulation available. In the second session, present a draft simulation scenario for feedback and discuss additional resources that might be useful to your simulation. In the third session, learn about simulation evaluation tools and more!

Please register for ALL THREE sessions.

Friday, March 22 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. 

Monday, April 15 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.

Monday, April 29 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.

An updated schedule with fall session dates will be posted in Summer 2024.
