Role-play simulations are a popular method for active learning in business education. Instructors in a variety of business disciplines use role-plays to facilitate student engagement and promote more dynamic class environments. In this book, the authors provide instructors of all experience levels with frameworks for understanding role-play simulations and implementing them in their classes. Professors Bolinger and Stanton have taught role-plays in the classroom and online for over 30 years combined. In Role-Play Simulations the authors describe the history and theories underlying the use and articulate the chief benefits of the method. They explain when and why role-play simulations are useful in business education classes and discuss a variety of considerations for implementing them, from advance preparation to post-activity debriefing. The book walks the reader through specific examples of different length simulations and their resource requirements. Included with their insights is an annotated bibliography with additional resources and examples of published role-play simulations across a variety of business disciplines.Whether new or experienced in using active learning methods and role-play simulations in the business classroom, instructors will benefit greatly from the wealth of information provided. The information and advice provided will also benefit corporate trainers, executives, or other practitioners who would like to learn more about the use of role-play simulations as a teaching tool.

Helping students or trainers to understand human behaviour is one of the most common problems faced by teachers and trainers. Increasingly tutors are using experiential methods to give individuals practice at dealing with real life problems, and many of these methods involve the use of role-play. If it is used well, role-play can vastly enhance the learning experience, but often the full potential of the role-play is diminished as it is ineffectively, or inappropriately, applied. Fully updated to reflect the changing (and increasing) use of role-play to reinforce learning both at school and work, The Effective Use of Role-play has now been adapted to incorporate advice on the use of computers in training and educational role-plays. Packed with practical tips yet firmly fixed upon a sound theoretical basis, this seminal work provides an ideal introduction to the topic. Containing the full range of available role-play methods, The Effective Use of Role-play covers everything you need to know in a single volume. The book offers sound advice on all aspects of role-play, including: the place of role-play in teaching and training; types of role-play and their strengths and weaknesses; how to allocate roles and brief participants; running the role-play sessions; debriefing. Sharing Morry van Ments' many years of experience, The Effective Use of Role-play is an essential handbook for anyone wanting to gain maximum benefit from the use of role-play.

Role play, or simulation, techniques are used as important tools in many contexts and disciplines, including research, psychotherapy, organizational change and education. Role play is generally characterized as a method to approximate real life' experiences in certain settings, yet the results can be disappointing due to lack of knowledge and understanding of the techniques involved. Amply illustrated through helpful and practical vignettes, this wide-ranging volume provides an explanation of role play theory and practice. Readers are shown how role play differs from other experimental or therapeutic techniques, and are introduced to the key requirements of good technique. The author does not offer a recipe book of solutions, but surveys the literature to offer a solid theoretical grasp of the subject.

Role play and foreign language learning helps the learners to develop speaking skills within defined social contexts. Languages are always spoken within certain defined spacio-social context. The learning of French as a foreign language in Kenya takes cognizance that oral skills are important to facilitate competent communication in any given language. The Kenyan reality of learning oral French skills within a learning set-up in Kenyan secondary schools is well presented in this text. The salient challenges are also highlighted since language learning is normally not a smooth sail for the learner and for the teacher who plays a pivotal facilitation role in guiding the learner to imbibe the vital communicative skills in the language that is being taught. On the whole role play is not just a language learning activity; it is an activity that provides impetus which propels human development in ist entire gamut of activities. A conspicuous hint on the importance of role play in our daily lives is also presented in this text with some examples well presented and cited in this write-up. Stephen Kraschen’s Montior Model on language acquisition and the Grounded Theory which helps to interprete social research findings have been used to analyze the data which was derived from the inquiry done in the Kenyan secondary schools. The classical importance of role play and simulation in the learning process has been well underscored in this particular text.

‘Here’s a knocking indeed!’ says the Porter in Shakespeare’s Scottish play (Act II, Scene 3) and immediately puts himself into role in order to deal with the demands of such an early call after a late night of drinking and carousal: ‘If a man were porter of hell-gate...’. But what roles does the porter of curriculum-gate take on in order to deal with drama’s persistent demands for entry? Ah, that depends upon the temperature of the times. We, who have been knocking for what seems to be a very long time, know well that when evaluation and measurement criteriaare demanded as evidence of drama’s ef cacy, an examiner stands as gatekeeper. When the educational landscape is in danger of overcrowding, we meet a territorial governor. And how often has the courtesan turned out to be only a tease because the arts are, for a brief moment, in the spotlight for their abilities to foster out-of-the-box thinkers? In this text, we meet these ‘commissionaires’ and many more. The gatekeeping roles and what they represent are so familiar that they have become cliches ́ to us. We know them by their arguments, ripostes, dismissals, their brief encouragement and lack of follow-up. And we know that behind each one (however rmly they think they keep the keys) is a nancial and political master whose power controls the curriculum building and everything in it.

Developments in digital technologies--and in understandings of how best to use them--have altered teaching and learning environments, and stand to do so even more rapidly in the future. Virtual Decisions: Digital Simulations for Teaching Reasoning in the Social Sciences and Humanities focuses on the special issues related to the use of digital technologies in teaching the complex nature of social decisions, with particular attention to the use of digital role-play simulations as a means to accomplish this. With the advent of new technologies for delivering multimedia simulations to students, and advanced graphics capabilities to create life-like decision environments, digital role-play simulations are increasingly available for K-12 and higher education teachers to use in the classroom. This book helps both users and developers make intelligent choices about the value added by using simulations, technology, and media to teach reasoning in social sciences and humanities classrooms. The book relies on a four-part framework for developing a digital multimedia-based simulation approach, which represents: a cross-disciplinary method to describing simulations; the students who are using them; the educational setting in which they are used; and a rubric for assessing learning. The volume is divided into two parts. The first part presents a review of the theory and research detailing why didactic approaches do not or cannot address specific learning goals, as well as a description of the theoretical framework for using and developing simulations. The second part includes chapters on specific digital simulations and how they fit with the theoretical framework. Virtual Decisions fills a significant gap in the existing literature of instructional technology and is of interest to instructors, primarily in the social sciences and humanities, who are potential users of the simulations. It is also a resource for graduate students and pre-service teachers studying simulation design.
