Employability skills - do your students have the qualities employers seek?
Simulations: The Student Employability Perspective
The use of simulations continues to grow in Higher Education business schools.
'A key to student buy-in is evidence of the enhanced overall learning and competencies acquired through participation in simulations.’
Higher Education institutions, lecturers, students and future employers are all seeking enhanced learning and student employability competencies. A demonstrable link between the use of simulations and key competencies would present a win for all stakeholders.
Research by two respected academics is helpful providing these findings. The two papers are by:
Anne Crowley et al, Department of Organisation and Professional Development, Cork Institute of Technology, Cork, Ireland.
Jason Evans, et al, School of Management, University of Gloucestershire provides a step towards positive evidence.
Both papers provide a step towards positive evidence. To quote a summary finding from Evans et al, ’the use of simulation based training….has shaped students’ competencies.’
