The COVID-19 pandemic put the regular and daily operation of the simulation centers on hold, thus reinventing the ways to ensure academic continuity. Faculty had to migrate from traditional face-to-face teaching to the remote digital online modality due to the emergency Covid-19 health confinement; this drastic change did not occur because of innovation. The instrument “Self-assessment on telesimulation for health sciences education” was designed and applied to 100 teachers from various Latin American countries. The dimensions of Active Learning, Interaction and communication, Multimedia, and Telesimulation were evaluated. The dimension with the highest average was Multimedia, and the one with the lowest average was Telesimulation. The telesimulation technique promotes the development of cognitive, kinesthetic, and psychomotor skills allowing training and feedback. There were identified gaps that impact professors’ use of telesimulation as a pedagogical strategy.
