“Using Simulations to Help Build Virtual Project Team Competencies”

Simulations provide a powerful context for applying both individual and collective virtual team learning experiences. Simulations can take advantage of the opportunity to maximize active and enjoyable involvement in a powerful virtual team learning process. Participants generate creative, emotional tension that encourages them to explore, conceptualize, inquire, experiment, and critically analyze task and social issues. Simulations place virtual team members in another time and space where they become agents of their own learning, and shift the simulation into a virtual learning laboratory, while providing a metaphoric structure for analyzing past, present and future circumstances. With the focus on learning rather than teaching, they build upon the collective experiences and knowledge of all the virtual participants, and make the lessons come “alive” in real time. They also provide an opportunity to explore from various new perspectives and encourage new thinking and using new behaviors in a complex virtual world.
