Creation and Evolution of a Simulation Instructor Course: A Qualitative Action Research Study

Teaching and learning with simulation is an important strategy of adult education in healthcare. This project describes an action research study focusing on the development of a simulation instructor course where experiential learning was not only the topic, but the tool by which the learners received most of the instruction. This work brings together experiential learning as defined in the adult education literature and concepts in simulation education (Fenwick, 2003). Due to the lack of other qualitative action research studies related to simulation instructor courses, the authors put forth this work as an example of the unfolding new knowledge learned in our course. The basis of our research question was: What topics should be given greatest weight and how should they be ordered in a simulation instructor course for experienced healthcare educators?
