Equity and Inclusion with Simulations
Keywords: HRM, simulation, educational equity
Abstract: Using an simulation as a wrap-around for not only applying concepts to real organizational challenges but as a means accommodate the varied learning styles, cultures, and disabilities in the classroom allowed students to explore HRM practices, to develop and demonstrate deeper and compassionate thought processes to solve ambiguous and complex problems confronting contemporary organizations, and the ability to effectively communicate ideas at the individual and group level while fostering the dynamics of inherently diverse teams. Importantly, the simulation provided a way of learning that other standardized tools do not, learning by doing in diversified situations. In this session, I will share my experience using a simulation to support inclusive design to achieve educational equity and insights on the strengths and limitations of the pedagogy as an add-on.
