The Smartsims Experience- The Best Way to Learn

The Smartsims Experience- The Best Way to Learn 2017-05-30 09:18:38
With increasing demands on instructors, and pressure on colleges and universities to provide work-ready graduates, instructors are looking for new ways to engage their students as a means of ensuring success. More is needed from teaching faculty in communicating and delivering course content, as Socratic and other traditional teaching methods are not engaging students as effectively as they once did. Students now need to be actively involved in their learning, rather than passively participating.

Smartsims Business Simulations adopt a philosophy and an approach which encourages action learning. All action learning approaches are philosophically rooted in theories of learning from experience, as practiced collaboratively with others through some form of action research. Employing action learning principles within a course enables students to resolve real problems in real time. Participants become engaged in the learning process and learn skills that transfer to the workplace once they graduate.

A typical action learning programme covers aspects of traditional learning models, where a series of presentations might be given on a specific theory or topic, and then builds on this through applying prior and new knowledge to a live project. This environment then provides intrinsic feedback from the work itself, rather than from an external authority (e.g. graded assignments).

One of the more common forms of action learning within higher education are business simulators, as developed by Smartsims Business Simulations. These are employed alongside traditional lectures as a teaching or learning resource where students form a management team to run their own virtual company. To succeed in action learning, participants must apply their learned knowledge to a live and responsive project (their simulated company). This environment poses multiple different situations and problems that students must address over the course of the simulation. Through this, Smartsims Business Simulations encourage student engagement and accelerate learning.
