Description

This paper deals with the relevance of simulation games in relation to higher-level business education as well as the challenges that are linked with learning assessment in business simulation game based learning activities. We collected data from 27 business simulation game training sessions on supply chain management and analyzed them qualitatively. Our data analysis shows that the perceived learning varies between the participants. Furthermore, the results of the analysis indicate that the learning through simulations is more like “know-how” than “know-what”. These findings are relevant when discussing the appropriateness of simulation games in MIS education.

ASSESSING THE POTENTIAL LEARNING FROM SIMULATION GAMES

This paper deals with the relevance of simulation games in relation to higher-level business education as well as the challenges that are linked with learning assessment in business simulation game based learning activities. We collected data from 27 business simulation game training sessions on supply chain management and analyzed them qualitatively.
