Simulation Use in the Online Classroom Today

Interview with Jim Werbaneth
Assistant Professor, Political Science at American Public University

Simulation use in the classroom has gone through an evolutionary process, and it will continue to do so. The innovation not only lies in the technology of the program, but the educational components that are being applied to the students’ learning track. In the course POLS211 at American Public University there are a number of innovative approaches to educating the student on political science and its construction. For example, students get to simulate being a senator, and they get to craft a bill and usher it through Congress to be passed. This not only engages the student, but it puts them in the seat of a lawmaker. Instead of analyzing on a one dimensional level they are pushed toward a more tangible approach to tackling the subject matter.

To talk more on the unique ways in which simulation is effectively being used in the classroom today is Jim Werbaneth. In the podcast below he talks about the different elements of this particular class, and the role it has played in furthering the education of his students.
