Enhancing Student Outcomes Using Web-Based Simulations
Enhancing student outcomes and increasing engagement in different course modalities surfaced as a major imperative for all management educators as a result of the changes brought forth by COVID-19. Using web-based simulations can emerge as a useful tool in both face-to-face and virtual courses, especially in subject areas such as Human Resource Management and Compensation and Benefits. While these courses feature specific human resources (HR) knowledge, they also emphasize critical skills necessary for everyday business interactions, teamwork and decision-making. The benefits of incorporating web-based simulations include providing a unique student experience that can enhance job prospects, a process focused on continuous reflection of student learning and assessment of knowledge, and an emphasis on collaborative and informed decision-making. Participants will assess their own level of comfort with implementing web-based simulations and will discuss potential challenges with incorporating this interactive tool in their courses.
