Professor Elisabeth Gerber is creating the Policymaker platform to allow educators to easily create and implement simulation activities in their classrooms. This platform provides customized, hands-on role-playing simulations designed to lead to engaged, interactive learning opportunities. Through these simulations, learners experience strategy development, collaboration, advocacy, and communication; they gain an appreciation of process complexity and stakeholder diversity while obtaining an in-depth knowledge of policy issues. Policymaker is designed as a flexible platform that can enable instructors to integrate classroom simulations into a variety of disciplines, topics, and multiple educational levels.
