Toward Endemic Deployment of Educational Simulation Games: A Review of Progress and Future Recommendations
Moizer, Jonathan; Lean, Jonathan
Simulation & Gaming, v41 n1 p116-131 2010
This article presents a conceptual analysis of simulation game adoption and use across university faculty. The metaphor of epidemiology is used to characterize the diffusion of simulation games for teaching and learning. A simple stock-flow diagram is presented to illustrate this dynamic. Future scenarios for simulation game adoption are presented, based on alternative diffusion behaviors. University strategies for increasing simulation game use are explored. It is concluded that while creating endemic use of simulation games by faculty is unlikely, we can employ measures that will significantly expand the stock of faculty acting as simulation game instructors.
