Training the Trainer

Yesterday, I went to see staff at the University of Hertfordshire in my role as The Learning and Development Manager for SimVenture Evolution. SimVenture Evolution is a groundbreaking on-line business strategy game, which has been specifically designed to fast-track learning within corporate training and higher education environments.

Many UK Universities are now using the software to teach subjects such as:

  • business management
  • financial management
  • decision making
  • entrepreneurship, enterprise & employability skills
  • operations management

I was really pleased to be able to meet the teaching team and review the use of SimVenture Evolution with them over the past year. I got some great feedback and shared ideas as to how to embed the software into the module more effectively so that learners and staff can get even more out of the simulation.

I’ve led the way in the development of case studies written specifically for the simulation and mapping module content to SimVenture Evolution. I am also proud to act in an advisory role working collaborately with academics so that they can match their teaching materials with the content of the simulation so that students can clearly see the interaction between theory and application.

Whilst driving back to Hampshire from Hertfordshire on the M25 near Heathrow airport my car registered 36 degrees so thank goodness for Air Conditioning!
