Simulations: Learning Lived Out
Simulations are experiential learning tools that come in a variety of forms and mediums. They enable learners to practice procedures and operations in safe and scalable environments with less risk or waste. They provide opportunities to learn by doing. In this issue of TD at Work, Tristia Hennessey details the reasons simulations are effective. Further, she:
- Explains the types of simulations for learning
- Notes how to gain stakeholder buy-in
- Goes over the nuts and bolts of implementation
- Offers tips for evaluating simulations for learning
The Tools & Resources in this issue are a simulation design process starting guide and a quality learning simulations checklist.
