Simulation 1

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