Learning Team Leadership Skills Through Simulations
Abstract: A simulation is a form of experiential learning which promotes the use of critical thinking, engaging interaction and self-reflection. This is especially important for leadership courses for which students need to experience and apply theories to specific scenarios. This experiential activity is designed for late undergraduate or postgraduate students who are studying team leadership or communication-related courses. It can be used in both an online environment and a face-to-face classroom. Learning activities are integrated before, during and after the simulation. This activity has been successfully implemented in a postgraduate leadership course.
