Upcoming: Teaching with Simulations

May 30, 2024
Simulations Infocus

Workshop Overview

May 30 – 31, 2024

This workshop will be conducted by SPJIMR Faculty, with content support from Harvard Business Publishing (HBP), to help instructors gain a deeper understanding of their approach to using simulations (SIMs) within their courses in the classrooms.

Simulations are powerful tools for reinforcing student learning, set in seemingly real-world environments. They are simple to set up and extremely user friendly as teaching tools in classrooms and can be used across courses and programmes.

The workshop seeks to familiarise the participants with the techniques needed to integrate SIMs within a course, and equip them with the necessary skills.

The workshop is intended as a general introduction for B-School instructors from all disciplines. The following criteria are desirable for getting the maximum benefits from this workshop.

  • Some interest in using SIMs
  • Any experience of use of innovative technology in class


The workshop covers a broad range of topics, including:

  • Setting up a class for using SIMs
  • Experience of using an HBP SIM
  • Group work vs individual work
  • Designing classroom teaching plans around SIMs
  • Questioning, listening and responding
  • Debrief and wrap-up
