Simulation Webinar Event: Difficult Conversations With a Novice Teacher

January 21, 2021

How do current and aspiring school leaders approach difficult conversations happening in schools? On January 21st, we facilitated a simulation where the principal of an elementary school receives concerns from staff regarding the clothing being worn by one of your novice teachers. Before you are able to address this issue, additional concerns surface about this teacher’s instruction. In this simulation, you will need to facilitate difficult conversations with this teacher to address these concerns. Simulation events like these help to improve critical thinking, decision-making, and judgment.

SchoolSims provides a powerful and affordable way to deliver highly effective leadership training. Current and aspiring school leaders are offered a chance to experience real-life scenarios that depict true events but in a simulated setting. Since there aren’t always right or wrong answers when it comes to human behavior, experimentation is encouraged within the simulation as there is no way to fail. Participants practice critical thinking and are encouraged to discuss the reasons behind their choices which allows for peer-to-peer learning.

When confronted with challenging situations, school leaders sift through their past experiences searching for relevant instances from which to draw knowledge. If learning from your mistakes is the best way to experience growth, how do we provide these learning experiences to current and aspiring leaders?

At SchoolSims, we have created the solution by providing manufactured experiences through online, software simulations that assist in growing current and aspiring school leaders. Simulations can be facilitated in-person or through any online meeting service. When gathering in groups is discouraged or not possible, online simulation training can be safely and effectively deployed.
