Simulation and Leadership Training.
Richardson, William B.; And Others
Ways in which group simulations were incorporated into a Three-Stage Model of Instruction, used to develop 13 units of leadership instruction, are described in this report. The units of instruction were designed for use by high school youth participating in vocational organizations. Using simulation to train leaders has several advantages: (1) it provides a realistic learning environment; (2) it generates a high degree of participant involvement; (3) it encourages the application of leadership knowledge; and (4) it can be used with large or small groups. The results of a field test of the 13 units of leadership instruction are also presented, focusing on the effectiveness of the group simulations. Methods to evaluate the effectiveness of group simulations are then discussed, along with consideration of the importance of simulation as an instructional technique. (Author/LBH)
