SimGlobal fuses an RPG framework with tabletop crisis exercises to craft an immersive, experiential college global issues course. Learn how to adapt our methods to your own course objectives.
Learn how instructors at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology designed and delivered a course on contemporary global issues built on an RPG framework. Called Simulating Global Crises, the course unites a role-playing game approach with crisis-response tabletop exercises to craft a social science class far more immersive and experiential than a standard lecture-and-essay course. We'll talk about the design and teaching process and discuss how you might be able to adapt it to your classroom as well!
