Background: Facilitation of meaningful in-home family assessments posed numerous challenges for first-year nursing students. Simulation has been shown to be a suitable replacement for clinical hours (Roberts et al., 2019). Poor availability of clinical placements, inability to monitor student progress, scheduling difficulties, and a lack of control over exposure to similar learning experiences are a few of the challenges that simulation solved.
Objective: To describe how: 1) H5P technology was used to create online virtual simulations that replaced in-home family visits and 2) co-creation of future simulations was promoted through the use of gamification.
Project description: Simulations involved integration of frameworks used in the course, active learning, and ongoing feedback within the simulation. Associated assignments, debriefing, and clear outcomes were used to enhance learning (Shin et al., 2019). A small portion of students opted to develop a case and act on camera as a client for future classes. H5P technology was then used by the educator to construct subsequent simulated in-home visits for students.
Outcomes: Anecdotally, students seem to be engaged in deeper learning through the use of simulations and co-creation of future simulations.
Conclusions: Developing quality simulations requires significant planning and knowledge of learner needs. Students are experts in their own contexts. Thus, involvement of students in planning future simulations has the potential to enhance the depth of learning. This innovative approach to involving students in the co-creation of future simulations deserves further investigation as a means to improve learning while reducing the workload of educators developing the simulation.
