A roadmap to simulation in Education

Elyssebeth Leigh, Irwyn Shepherd, Amanda Davies, Elizabeth Tipton

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter in textbook/reference bookpeer-review


A structured model for use in deciding when and how to include simulations and games into educational programs is introduced here. The model is based on extensive research into relevant educational theories underpinning simulation design and practices and is located within a macro-level analysis of factors affecting curriculum development. The intention is to illustrate the complexity as well as the benefits of using active learning strategies - especially simulations and games – to engage students in their own learning processes and encourage educators to expand their options for learning design.
