Simulation Educator Training (SET) course
This is a course for health care professionals who are (or plan to be) engaged in simulation-based education. It includes a spectrum of content designed to advance the skills of both novice and intermediate simulation educators.
Research has shown that simulation is an effective learning tool, and more educators in the health professions are incorporating simulation in their curricula. This course provides instruction to health educators who would like to integrate technology into their programs but who are unsure of how to get started.
As part of our commitment to continuous quality management, we require all participants to submit confidential evaluation forms upon completion of the course. This evaluation helps measure the course’s educational impact on educators and learners.
NOTE: Registration for courses will become available via a link under the associated course 4-5 months prior to the course start date.

What you’ll learn
The principal aim of this course is to equip health educators to implement a variety of simulation-based learning opportunities for their students. The course focuses on the competencies required to
- Develop a simulation curriculum and integrate with other learning activities
- Design, develop, facilitate and evaluate simulation cases and simulation sessions
- Provide effective feedback and debriefing
- Describe the principles informing performance based assessment
- Describe the foundations of program evaluation for simulation programs
“The Posner Report”: A Simulation Debriefing “Rant” by Dr. Glenn Posner
Simulation educator Dr. Glenn Posner, MDCM, FRCSC, M.Ed, has been involved in debriefing for 15 years, and believes that the advice and feedback given during a theatre-based simulation debriefing is a critical part of the overall professional development experience that is simulation.
In this lighthearted – yet educational – testimonial presented during the 2015 Simulation Summit, Dr. Posner explains how debriefing has evolved in recent years; shares important tips and advice for the beginner debriefer; and explains why aspiring debriefers should sign up for the Simulation Educator Training (SET)course.
This activity is an Accredited Simulation Activity (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada, and approved by University of Ottawa’s Office of Continuing Professional Development on the 10th of March 2017 and expires March 2020.
