Simulations for Higher Education

The most effective Educational Leadership Development Programs provide students with the conceptual tools and professional preparation to become accomplished school leaders. Successful, capable leaders must develop the critical problem-solving skills necessary to positively influence their classrooms’ educational practice and manage the diverse demands of the overall communities in which they serve.

Our simulations can be deployed within your current curriculum to provide practice to these aspiring leaders to inform their decision-making with virtual, situational experience. Developed with school districts and universities throughout the United States, the topics covered by the SchoolSims’ Simulation Library relate to many of the issues facing the districts of your enrolled students. By incorporating simulations into your existing curriculum – either facilitated in groups or deployed asynchronously – participants gain practice and begin to develop the essential muscle memory to make the best decisions in real life.

What Students Say About Our Simulations

“The simulations were an excellent tool to practice the competencies that I will use as an administrator. They were also the most helpful in preparing for behavioral interview questions that provide a scenario. As a result of the simulations, I am able to explain exactly what steps I would take to resolve a situation.”

“I personally found the simulations quite helpful in making me think outside the box. I think they also confirmed what I thought were some strengths that would help me become a better leader but also exposed some weakness areas that I will continue to grow and work on.”

“I did not know what to anticipate with the simulations before this course. I found them to be incredibly beneficial. They provided real world insight on how to respond to complex situations. I enjoyed when we completed the simulation together in class as well.  This allowed us to bounce ideas off of each other with the direction of the professor. I am glad that I had the opportunity to test out some of these situations prior to handling them in a real administrative role. I learned a lot of applicable lessons through these simulations.”

“I really enjoyed the simulations. I felt that they provided us with real-life situations that leaders need to address on a day-to-day basis. The feedback was helpful information to keep in our tool kit when moving into leadership roles.”
