Instructional Simulation Systems in Higher Education.
Armstrong, R. H. R., Ed.; Taylor, John L.
The two major purposes of this book are to be an introduction to the development of instructional simulation systems in higher education and to provide a useful compendium of experimental simulation experience for those wishing to consider and utilize these and related techniques at the university level. Each paper attempts either to present a "state of the art" report on some of the important developments and strands of thinking in a particular field or to present a "case" description of the application of a technique within a specific educational sector. Most are preliminary or interim reports in that they represent summaries of ongoing research. Many of the findings relate to instructional simulation experience in the United Kingdom. Examples of simulation use in military science, international relations, urban and regional studies, government, economics, psychology, and management training are offered, as well as statements concerning the techniques of simulation and gaming as education tools.
