Hanson, Garth A.
Thirty-six participants and four observers representing 34 states attended the practicum at the Utah State University campus in Logan, July 8-19, 1968. The purpose was to provide high school business teachers with practical knowledge, experience, and materials for designing and operating simulated business offices in their classrooms. The practicum allowed time for participants to plan programs to be used in their home schools. One section of the report develops the following topics in relating to simulation: (1) present role, (2) purpose and background, (3) design, (4) objectives, (5) physical facility, (6) evaluation, (7) debriefings, (8) phases, (9) development, and (10) future role. The appendix presents the following papers: (1) "Simulation Principles" by Garth A. Hanson, (2) "Simulation for Poverty Area Training Programs" by Chuck Bustya, (3) "Dynamics of Education for Office Occupations" by Bruce I. Blackstone, and (4) "Educational Technology" by Harry Silberman. Some materials utilized in the simulation process are also included. (JK)
