AFTHER: A Decision-Making Game for Higher Education. ASHE Annual Meeting 1979 Paper.
Gunne, G. Manny
AFTHER, a computer simulation game for dealing with the complexities of higher education in a changing electronic world, is described. It is a tool for decision research and decision assistance. AFTHER enables the users to study higher education governance and its decision-making patterns in general, or to readily convert the simulation to an institution's particular characteristics and problems. This individualized conversion, used for teaching, decision research, or decision assistance, can be done without knowledge of computer language. Within the parameters of the game model, the computer can reprogram itself in all areas and dimensions of analysis and readily accept modified or revised data for institutional analysis. The simulation procedure, simulation elements, advantageous features, and research and development implications are detailed. (Author/MSE)
