Does low-fidelity (LF) versus high-fidelity (HF) simulation affect â€œâ€¦studentâ€™s perception of the active learning process?â€ (p. 131). That is the question that Butler & Veltre, masters prepared nurses at Modesto Junior College, and Brady, a doctor of nursing practice at California State University, seek to answer. Using the nursing education simulation framework as theoretical grounding, students were randomly assigned to the LF or HF simulation scenarios. Immediately following their scenario experience, all participants completed a questionnaire regarding â€œâ€¦simulation design, educational practices, and student satisfaction and self-confidence in learningâ€ (p. 131). Ultimately, the researchers found that, though students preferred HF simulation, both LF and HF simulation promoted active learning.
