Transcript

  • 1. Using Computer-Based Simulations with Adult Learners
    Jennifer Foreman
    University of Connecticut
  • 2. Goals for this presentation
    When simulations can be used effectively
    How to evaluate simulation exercises
    Role responsibilities
    Problems with simulations
    Assessing learning outcomes of simulations
  • 3. Why simulation?
    Engages students with direct experiential learning
    Reduces need for direct instruction and physical space requirements of traditional learning arrangements
    Enables approximation of situations that may be too rare, dangerous, or expensive to be actually undertaken (Cannon Bowers & Bowers)
  • 4. What to look for in simulation-based training experiences
    Content
    Immersion
    Interactivity
    Communication
    Source: Current Issues and Future Directions in Simulation-Based Training (Bell, Kanar & Kozlowski, 2008)
  • 5. Facilitator Responsibilities in Simulations
    Appropriate method choice
    Physical space considerations
    Learner characteristics
    Relevancy
    Feedback
    Reflection
  • 6. Problems that may arise
    Cost/benefit tradeoff of developing computerized training simulations
    Lack of realism of simulation
    Lack of learner engagement
    Lack of emphasis on application and reflection
  • 7. Assessing Outcomes
    Near-term outcomes
    Long-run outcomes
  • 8. Final Thoughts on Simulations
