In the last post, training simulations were defined as ‘a learning intervention designed to imitate reality for the purpose of learning and applying skills’. Business enterprises and academic institutions require simulations that can fit their learning requirements. To adapt to this need, simulations are designed using two important considerations: complexity and learning content.
The complexities in simulations range from simple relationships between a few variables to intricate relationships between multiple variables. Similarly, the learning content will also range from addressing transaction level decisions to strategy level decisions. If we were to plot them in a grid, we get the four broad genres of simulations. At TIS, we have:
And anything else, in any combination can be achieved using a custom made simulation. A slightly detailed overview can be obtained at our website, and for specific information, please connect with us in the comments section below.
At TIS, the Simulations Center of Excellence (CoE) has engaged with clients across the industry spectrum to create award-winning simulations across the skill continuum from schools to industry bodies.
Here is a quick introduction of the TIS Simulations CoE core members who will collaborate on this blog for you:
