Session 6A:
Simulations & How They Enhance Interdisciplinary Education

Speaker: Gordon McCord, Ryan Kelsey, Rob Garfield
3:10 PM - 4:00 PM

Web-based simulations can be a powerful teaching and learning tool for higher education. Simulations help students integrate multiple disciplines, develop mental models of complex systems, or grapple with multivariate problems using data models or algorithms. This session will provide an overview and examples of different types of Web-based simulations and will focus on the teaching and learning aspects of using simulations in the classroom. Gordon McCord will present the Millennium Village Simulation, a collaborative project between CCNMTL and the Earth Institute.
