Event Details

Join us on Wednesday, October 25 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. in Room 827 of the Office of Academic Innovation space in the Hatcher Graduate Library (8th floor of Hatcher South) for a meeting of the Simulations Community of Practice.

The Simulations Community of Practice is an interdisciplinary group of U-M staff and faculty who meet regularly to discuss the development and implementation of simulation-based teaching tools. Participants explore the benefits and challenges of simulation activities, as well as share experiences and resources.

During this meeting, participants will discuss the ways participants’ social identities might inform their experiences of a role-playing simulation. How do participants’ social identities, reputations, and relationships affect the way they inhabit or perform roles within the simulation? How might simulation designers/facilitators take participants’ social identities into consideration when assigning roles and communicating role-playing expectations?  How might facilitators responsibly address challenges that arise as learners grapple with social identity issues in a simulation?

All instructors and staff who create and/or facilitate simulation activities for the classroom, or who are interested in doing so, are welcome to attend.
