Simulation at STCC School of
Nursing
 Used
across the curriculum
 Once a semester: “simulation days”


Reinforce key concepts of course
High risk/low frequency activities
Simulation at STCC School of
Nursing: Challenges
 Large
class
 Space limitations
 Time

Simulation day experiences as alternative to
clinical for one week/semester
 personnel
Peer Review by Remote
Observation



Previous experience with self and peer evaluation in
nursing program
Support from social learning theory (Bandura, 1977)
Support from literature
 Secomb(2008): peer teaching and learning increased
student confidence and learning
 Sittner (2009): used peer observers in an unfolding
scenario
 Smith-Stone (2009): web broadcast of scenarios with
observer input into debriefing via chat room
Peer Review by Remote
Observation at STCC
 Scenario
participants observed by peers
via closed circuit television
 Observers participate in debriefing
 Roles reversed, new scenario used
 Observers use worksheet as framework
for evaluation
