Designing Effective Simulations

Training Simulations Improve Learning Outcomes Research shows that learning activities that recreate work situations improve transfer of learning (Swanson & Holton, 1999). Aviation, civil emergency preparedness, business management, and medicine all use realistic scenarios to teach or improve complex skills. When the cost of failure is high and when the performance arena uncertain, simulations are […]

It’s really the reviews, edits, tweaks, and project logistics that seem to add up. Writing is a fairly simple, […]
