Archive of Simulations and Games

for the Enhancement of the Learning Experience
[edit]

Simulation exercises, role playing and games have been used in the past in a number of subject areas to enhance the classroom learning experience; however, recent advances in learning technologies have allowed simulation exercises to form part of technology-enhanced, student-centred, blended learning strategies designed to boost student engagement and learning both within and beyond the classroom.

The archive aims to support this development by providing an open learning resource of simulation, role playing and game materials together with guidance notes for tutors and students that can be used across a range of modules within Politics and International Relations and, more broadly, other Social Sciences. For more information please go here.

Please note that the simulations and games in this archive come from a variety of resources, and that ASGELE is merely concerned with bringing them together into a single database.
