Teaching and Learning Workshop on Simulation

Simulation learning tools—ranging from single-class period sessions to multi-day, multi-campus events—have gained in popularity as instructors seek innovative ways of reaching students. This half-day workshop will be designed specifically for faculty advisors, graduate instructors and educators to learn about the benefits and challenges of hands-on simulation as experiential learning. Sessions will be designed to appeal to simulation exercises in general – including, but not limited to Model United Nations, Model European Union, and Model Arab League simulations.
