“Having used simulations for a few years now in my college teaching, my students consistently praise the opportunity to have done so.  They view the simulation experiences as valuable additions to the course content, providing them with actual opportunities to apply their content understanding to real-world situations.  When done synchronously, they have especially appreciated the opportunity to work with others in small groups, indicating how much their thinking on difficult decisions was positively influenced by hearing the points of view of others prior to making that decision.  As they say, ‘it is much better to have had this opportunity in our classroom environment than facing that problem on the job for the first time.’”
