W1D Workshop

Guided Simulation in Professional Practice

Wednesday 9 December  |  11:00 – 12:30


This workshop will demonstrate and discuss how Guided Simulation can be applied to deliver Engagement with Professional Practice (EPP) to engineering students. Organisational context is developed by students working through a task with direction from a facilitator. Stakeholders (from industry – guest or pre-recorded) and the facilitator set the organisational scene and describe the constraints and business systems students will need to work within as they move through the various active learning activities required to complete the task.

Guided Simulation done in this format can be used as a scaffold to problem-based learning (PBL) activities. Lesson timing and learning outcomes are easier to control than PBL, and it is suitable for online and face-to-face delivery. Guided Simulation should be considered as part of a repertoire of pedagogies used in university curriculums to deliver ‘whole brain’ teaching. Whole brain teaching forces students to stretch and grow in directions they might be inclined to avoid if given the option, making them better able to function effectively as professionals (Felder & Brent 2016 p.278).
