This presentation explores the strengths and weaknesses of using course-long role plays to increase student engagement and learning effectiveness. The presenters created fictitious business organizations and gave students the role of employee in the organizations in order to create a more realistic teaching and learning environment in which to apply communication and conflict resolution skills. The presentation will focus on the process used to create the learning environment, technology used to facilitate learning, and student perceptions of the approach.
