SAGSET 2001 - Employability: the Role of Games Simulations and Case Studies

Annual Conference of the Society for the Advancement of Games and Simulations in Education and Training July 17 -19, 2001 at the University of Leeds, a joint collaboration between SAGSET and the Context Project

The conference is a forum for the discussion of the use of games and simulations in education and training. The Context project, which promotes the use of case materials and simulations in higher education, has been instrumental in developing many such materials. This year's conference is on the theme of employability and the development of key skills. Our aim is to discuss ways in which the use of games and simulations develops students and employees. The conference will provide a venue for the presentation of papers about use and design as well as an opportunity to explore the use of existing games and simulation with colleagues in related areas. The kinds of activities considered are:

We invite proposals for contributions to the conference in the form of seminars or workshops that take up the themes of employability and the development of key skills.

Sessions will be either half an hour or one hour long. The hour long sessions (workshops) provide the opportunity for interactivity and experiential learning for the participants, the half hour sessions (seminars) will normally provide the opportunity for 10 minutes of questionsat the end. Please indicate whether you want to lead a seminar or an interactive workshop.
