Simulation is an engaging and meaningful way for learners to put theory into action. But it takes much more that setting up an interesting simulation for learning to occur. This chapter shows how to plan and facilitate learning in the simulated environment. It starts by examining how to develop a sound plan for tasks, activities, and assessments that will make a difference to learning, and allow you to effectively monitor progress. It then looks at turning that plan into a powerful learning experience by highlighting key features of good teaching. Useful tips are provided on how to effectively manage participants, time, and activities, and how to use the opportunities in the simulated environment to monitor and progress learning for each participant in the most powerful ways. Finally, the chapter looks at what information to gather so that you can evaluate and improve your course the next time round.
