Let Disrupt: Simulation Based Education (SBE) in Higher Ed and Corporate Training

Posted by: Maimun Mustafa - Global Chamber Dhaka on Wednesday, September 9, 2020

COVID-19 has opened up the world for greater collaboration between the corporate and the educational sector, and so we held a discussion on how online education and simulation learning can re-design the future of higher education and by extension the fate of the future workforce.

Very special thank you to our regional team in Bangladesh for your assistance in putting this informative and educational discussion together!

Watch the globinar recording HERE.

The introduction of simulation learning in higher education can initially take place by getting two-three leading marketing/tech companies on board who have a higher preference among undergraduate/graduate students for seeking a job after graduation. If higher education itself wants to improve, it has to adapt to technologies like simulation, and the pandemic gives opportunity to incorporate such practices. 

About: Simulation Based Education (SBE)

Simulation learning (Sims) is able to demonstrate abstract concepts and transform them into interactive visual content, making it easier for students to reinforce their theoretical knowledge with hands-on training through simulation tools, giving them a better understanding of the course materials. There are many studies that have proven the use of simulation to improve learning.


Objectives of the Globinar

  • Discuss the potential of Sims in increasing pertinent skills of undergraduate students
  • Discuss how Sims can be utilized for better hiring practices
  • Explore how Sims can reduce job redundancy
  • Discuss how utilizing sims can improve an organization’s productivity. 
  • Suggest steps that align the academics and the corporates.
