Providing a clear starting point for the effective use of simulations in the classroom, this book showcases the unique transition from educator to facilitator. Elyssebeth E. Leigh and Laurie L. Levesque present a practical and supportive guide with a strong educational focus, ultimately encouraging a greater level of confidence in classroom simulations.

Facilitating Simulations illuminates the many benefits of using games and simulations for an educational purpose, including a deep comprehension of concepts, an increase in student interaction, and adaptability to different contexts. Leigh and Levesque use a diverse range of vignettes, allowing the reader to experience various facilitation situations and understand their potential challenges, such as the possibility of a student hijacking the simulation process or unclear time constraints. Both theory and practice are engaged to encourage further simulation development and research into the benefits of this exciting educational methodology.

This book is vital for scholars and academics focusing on managerial education, new teaching methods, and education. It is also a good resource for educators working with students in disciplines where practical learning advice founded in established educational theory would be valuable.
