Event Description

Full Description:
This workshop explores how online simulations can be integrated into large courses to promote experiential learning of course theory and practice.

Simulations create simplified ‘real world’ contexts for students to experience how theories can be applied to inform decision making in and around organisations. Drawing on the Everest Team Simulation as an illustrative example, this workshop will provide practical guidance on how to effectively integrate an online simulation into a large course to create more meaningful and challenging learning experiences and assessment.

Through interactive activities and discussion linked to experiences with the Everest Team Simulation, workshop participants will explore questions such as:
- How can I integrate a simulation into my course through learning activities and assessment?
- What are the keys to using simulations effectively in large courses?
- How much extra administrative and coordination work do simulations create for the teaching team in large courses?

The workshop will be presented by academics who have integrated the Everest Team Simulation into an introductory management course with enrolments in excess of two thousand students per year and who have published research investigating student experiences in this course in international journals.
