Developing computer simulations as an engaging training tool

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers


In this presentation, Dr. Lu wants to show case simulation-based learning as a pedagogical feature of the center’s knowledge transfer efforts. Simulation-based learning is a learning approach which integrates case study, problem solving, and experiential learning by delivering a complex computer-based simulation task to learners. Through 5 research grants and supervision of postgraduate students, she has been participating in revising and applying a computer simulation on organizational change for Chinese learners. Simulation-based learning demonstrates to have a broad range of strengths that cannot be provided by conventional teaching. It provides a realistic, risk-free, complex, fun learning environment, requires action-directed reasoning, and allows for higher levels of knowledge transfer.
