Using Simulations To Promote Learning in Higher Education: An Introduction. Enhancing Learning Series.
Hertel, John P.; Millis, Barbara J.
This book provides an introduction to the use of simulations to create an environment within which students can apply theory and practice skills in real-world issues related to their discipline. The simulations described range from simple scenarios for a single class period to complex simulations that may be a semesters work. The chapters are: (1) Why Simulations Further Educational Goals; (2) What Is an Education Simulation?; (3) Designing an Education Simulation; (4) Managing an Education Simulation; (5) Debriefing an Education Simulation; (6) Responsible Assessment; and (7) An Extended Simulation. Seven appendixes contain some sample simulations and related materials. (Contains 1 table and 89 references.) (SLD)
