- Develop and maintain a resource data bank of theories and practices related to effective management and facilitation of simulations used for learning.
- Support Simulation Australia activities in influencing governments and education authorities in regard to understanding, developing and using simulations for educational purposes.
- Working in conjunction with the Professional Development Committee, this SIG provides events and resources for Simulation Australia members to support their professional development needs.
Such events may include:
- Online and face to face
- Meetings on topics of interest to members
- Collaborative research projects to extend and improve community awareness of contributions that simulation makes to skill and knowledge development
- Practical skills seminars
- Provide opportunities for members to access research and other information relevant to the use of simulation in the industry.
Support development of activities that focus on the design and use of simulations and games for instruction and learning.
Sponsor and support research based projects focused on skill and knowledge development for:
- Learning facilitators
- Learning and development professionals
- Human factors specialists
- Others engaged in the use of simulation for learning
While this SIG is for anyone whose focus in on the learning process involved in the use of simulation rather than on a specific industry context, it is also for those who are concerned with all aspects of human factors in simulation.
Development and publication of resources for those intending to facilitate learning via any form of simulation or game based activity.
Work with members and leadership teams of other SIG’s to extend and promote effective training of users of simulation in regard to human factors and learning goals and outcomes.
