Abstract:
In 2008 an innovative and unique approach to simulation using life like silicone props worn by the educator was introduced in a first year undergraduate nursing program at CQUniversity in Queensland, Australia.  The technique termed MASK-ED™ (KRS simulation) involves the educator (hidden totally behind authentic silicone props) to transform into a character with a history relevant to the learning experience. The character then becomes the platform for teaching. The intent of the technique is to bring the patient to the centre of the simulation experience. The technique has proven to engage learners and prepare them for their clinical experience in a unique and creative way and has now been defined, refined and articulated.  This presentation will demonstrate the approach and explain the pedagogy developed to inform the technique. Findings from two research studies which highlight students’ and educator’s perceptions will be presented.  The presentation will conclude with an outline of where the technique is now at and future directions.
