Learning can’t always happen in 15 minutes, 30, or even 60. Often times, learners need repeated attempts at a lesson in order to fully absorb the meaning and leave with the expected outcomes, particularly when learning interpersonal skills. What design can yield a safe environment for learners to fail constructively? Simulations.

Simulations offer time and space for learners to try multiple strategies in achieving the learning goal in a safe environment: practice reps for the real world. Join Bryan Guo as he reviews his research into simulations and guides attendees in best practices they can use to create compelling simulations of their own.
