Authentic Learning<br />Realistic scenarios increase knowledge transfer<br />A progression of practice opportunitieshelps promote transfer, since learners are continually transferring their skills from one practice opportunity to the next.<br />The Mission Game provides learners with a practice experience that bears strong similarities to real-life this increases transfer and the likelihood that trainees will actually be able to apply their skills in real life.”<br />Beal, C., Johnson, W.L., Dabrowski, R., & Wu, S.
