Linked Event: Learning and Teaching with Simulation Games and Role Play: drawing on expertise in Politics and Social Sciences

Posted in: Linked Event

Date: Thursday 11th June

Time: 10.00am - 11.30am

Venue: 1WN 2.4

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences have an event in a few weeks time:

Dr Simon Usherwood (Surrey) will be running a workshop that explores and explains how you can use simulation games and role plays in your classroom teaching. Dealing with issues including how to design your own simulation game and maximise the benefits of this pedagogy, the workshop will equip you with all the necessary tools to bring something new to your classroom, as well as giving you an opportunity to play a couple of simulation games yourself.

Simon will draw on his extensive experience on using and writing about simulation games, which he has used with a wide range of student groups. Together with his wider expertise in learning & teaching, he is well-placed to discuss how simulations can form an integrated part of an enriched learning environment for students. More information about his work can be found at

Refreshments provided.
