Situational Learning in Practice
The Mekong eSim is a creative, web based role play set in the Mekong region of South East Asia. It operates as part of the Environmental Engineering II Course in the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences and other faculties are also welcome to be involved.
In addition to learning technical skills, participants find that the eSim provides an excellent environment for learning generic skills such as problem solving, communication, cultural awareness and working in a group.
Disaster Down Under
The Disaster Down Under eSim uses a scenario based approach and was developed by the Discipline of Nursing following the Bali bombings of 2002. It seeks to inform participants of the issues faced in a diaster situation involving multiple burn casualties and attempts to involve students in the hypothetical management of these casualties.
