Role-play simulations are a popular method for active learning in business education. Instructors in a variety of business disciplines use role-plays to facilitate student engagement and promote more dynamic class environments. In this book, the authors provide instructors of all experience levels with frameworks for understanding role-play simulations and implementing them in their classes.

Professors Bolinger and Stanton have taught role-plays in the classroom and online for over 30 years combined. In Role-Play Simulations the authors describe the history and theories underlying the use and articulate the chief benefits of the method. They explain when and why role-play simulations are useful in business education classes and discuss a variety of considerations for implementing them, from advance preparation to post-activity debriefing. The book walks the reader through specific examples of different length simulations and their resource requirements. Included with their insights is an annotated bibliography with additional resources and examples of published role-play simulations across a variety of business disciplines.

Whether new or experienced in using active learning methods and role-play simulations in the business classroom, instructors will benefit greatly from the wealth of information provided. The information and advice provided will also benefit corporate trainers, executives, or other practitioners who would like to learn more about the use of role-play simulations as a teaching tool.
Critical Acclaim
‘Role plays properly done are one of THE most powerful educational tools instructors can employ—at all levels. Bolinger and Stanton present a thorough, detailed, rigorous analysis of the technique including origins, types, challenges, applications and pitfalls. Every instructor should master this technique—and this book will help enormously.’
– James G. Clawson, University of Virginia, US
