Panel Discussion: Simulation Effectiveness
Chief Learning Officer's Fall Symposium
An increasing number of learning and development professionals have been utilizing virtual learning simulations as an efficient, learner-embraced delivery tool. As today’s learning leaders evaluate these innovations, however, some core questions emerge: Are learning simulations effective? Can they be easily and cost-effectively adapted for new uses and applications? What are the considerations and components necessary for simulations to be effective?
A 2021 survey conducted by Chief Learning Officer, in combination with research from LinkedIn Learning and Accenture, suggests there is ample evidence of simulations’ ability to effectively deliver meaningful, engaging, impactful learning content to virtually any targeted audience. To be successful, though, correct measurement and reporting tools must be incorporated into the simulation structure from the beginning.
Watch this recorded panel discussion from the CLO Symposium, featuring Theresa Zeller and Jennifer Iannetta of Merck & Co. Inc., who shared their simulation learning experience, and David Denz of Leieren Performance Learning Systems LLC, who reviewed some of the key takeaways from the CLO study, and learn best practices for maximizing an investment in simulation learning.
