Simulating the Foreign Policy Decision-Making Process in the Undergraduate Classroom
Loggins, Julie A.
PS: Political Science and Politics, v42 n2 p401-407 Apr 2009
A simulation of the foreign policy decision-making process, as described in this article, can assist an instructor in linking students' abstract understanding of complex political events, circumstances, and decision making to the real-world interplay of the multiple factors involved in decision making. It is this type of active learning that helps bring a student's abstract understanding into the concrete world. Instead of being passive learners relying on an instructor's knowledge, students are active participants in the learning process.
