The Wisconsin Technology Enhanced Collaborative Nursing Education (WI-TECNE) faculty development project involves strengthening technology-enhanced teaching approaches among nursing faculty from five university and partnering technical college nursing programs. A project aim was to help faculty create and utilize mannequin-based simulations. This was done through brownbag videoconferences, online discussions, and a workshop. The nursing education simulation framework by Jeffries and Rogers (2007) guided the project. The purpose of this assessment study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the project in influencing nursing faculty interest in utilizing and creating mannequin-based simulations. A simulation interest survey was administered online to 29 WI-TECNE faculty members at the start and end of the academic year. Eleven of the faculty (9 from the universities; 2 from the colleges) completed the survey at both time points. Teams from each of the university/college campuses also were asked to report at the completion of the academic year how they developed or utilized mannequin-based simulations in courses. No statistically significant differences, using paired t-tests, were found in the survey responses at the start and end of the academic year; however, slight trends of increased comfort in creating and using simulations and interest in incorporating simulation into courses were observed. Additionally, the teams reported that they designed, recorded, and located simulations for use in online health assessment; theory; management and leadership; and community health nursing courses, as well as for various clinical courses. In conclusion, although the teams created or utilized simulations, the effectiveness of the project in influencing individual faculty members' interest in simulation was difficult to assess, as few participants completed the survey at both time points. Maintaining interest throughout the year was challenging and was confounded by scheduling conflicts that interfered with attending the brownbag videoconferences. Creative economical efforts are needed to keep faculty engaged in new pedagogies and to facilitate accessible means of interacting.
