Simulations for Deeper Learning
Simulated encounters in teacher education offer an opportunity for deeper learning but require careful consideration of what is being simulated, how, and what else is done to leverage the encounter itself. In this session, participants learned about the most common forms of simulation in teacher education (i.e., structured role play, live-actor, avatar-based) and the kinds of considerations that support deeper learning. Presenters described three forms of simulation as case examples and ended with specific questions that participants can use in planning deeper learning encounters.
- Simulation Group A Structured Role Play
- Simulation Group B Live Actor
