Top : Training Methods and Activities : Simulations:

Simulations are powerful training techniques particularly when they are as similar to the performance environment as possible. Here we will discuss how simulations can be used effectively in training and development.

Simulation Training Evaluation By na
How do you evaluate the effectiveness of simulations in training. Here's a summary that covers: How do you evaluate performance? How do you determine performance metrics? How do I measure training effectiveness? What is a TEE (Transfer Effectiveness Evaluation)? What is a transfer effectiveness evaluation? What is reverse transfer of training? What is negative transfer of training? How do I measure skill retention? What is the cost effectiveness of simulator training and how is it measured? What is the cost effectiveness of distributed mission training and how is it measured? Hits: 468 )

Ten 'Mistakes' Commonly Made by Persons Designing Educational Simulations and Games By Gary Shirts
If someone were to ask me to identify the mistakes most often made by game designers, including myself, I would, after assuring myself that the questioner understands that game design is a very personal activity and that there are no right answers, reply in the following dogmatic manner: Hits: 174 )

Effective simulation training - Police Training By Todd Brown
Simulation is a theme that is prevalent in all of our training sessions. Some might argue that all training is simulation in one form or another. However, most law enforcement instructors, and as a result, most officers, do not reap the greatest benefit from their simulation exercises. Hits: 311 )

Simulations By na
A simulation is a form of experiential learning. Simulations are instructional scenarios where the learner is placed in a "world" defined by the teacher. They represent a reality within which students interact. The teacher controls the parameters of this "world" and uses it to achieve the desired instructional results. Simulations are in way, a lab experiment where the students themselves are the test subjects. They experience the reality of the scenario and gather meaning from it. It is a strategy that fits well with the principles of constructivism. new Hits: 185 )

In Situ Simulation: Challenges and Results By Mary D. Patterson, MD; George T. Blike, MD; Vinay M. Nadkarni, MD
(pdf)In Situ Simulation: Challenges and Results is a research based academic discussion of simulation in clinical environments, but the issues described as certainly relevant to training. Hits: 258 )

Simulation training (From A Law Enforcement Perspective) By Gary T. Klugiewicz & Gary Monreal
In this article, we’ll review 10 key steps for creating safe and realistic, scenario-based, decision-making simulations to help instructors get off on the right foot. We’ll talk about developing a nuts-and-bolts template for scenario-based simulation training programs. This article will not discuss the importance of simulation. If an instructor doesn’t know simulation training needs to be the centerpiece of all training programs, they have some real problems. Hits: 374 )
