Authentic Assignments for Enhanced Learning and Engagement: The Statecraft International Relations Simulation - Chris Dolan
Wednesday, March 11th, 2015, 12 - 1 p.m.
Neidig-Garber 203

In this forum, Chris Dolan will speak about the Statecraft International Relations simulation and how he used this program in his course to create authentic assignments. International Relations, as a subject of study, has too many moving parts and students frequently become so overwhelmed with the material that they became incredibly passive early in the semester. Chris will show participants how integrating the Statecraft simulation into the course helped students connect, allowing for greater collaboration and increased student engagement with the material. We will also discuss how other disciplines may benefit from a similar strategy. Lunch will be provided.
