CapsimInbox Microsimulation Development Lab- Calling all Faculty and PhD Students

Taking you BEYOND the classroom, the Educators Track is designed for scholars, lecturers, trainers, and university faculty across disciplines who want to connect with like-minded colleagues on teaching innovations, research and pedagogy needed serve communities and develop talent the world needs now.

Since 2020, GBSN and Capsim have joined forces to help bring quality and experiential business learning to communities worldwide through the Microsimulation Development Lab experience. The two organizations brought together scholars, lecturers, trainers, and academic faculty worldwide to design and develop a micro inbox simulation using current data, research, cases, and personal experiences.

Teams of 1-4 educators come together to design these 15-30 minute microsimulations, which immerse learners in real-world scenarios and evaluate essential skills in a realistic context.

How does the Microsim Development Lab work?

This year, the Microsimulation Development Lab is offering an opportunity to earn two unique digital badges, which will properly prepare participants who are serious in developing a microsimulation.

These two badging opportunities provide faculty participants support in the process of designing and building a 15-30 minute inbox simulation experience. Faculty will understand how to bring these simulations to the classroom. These microsimulations will immerse learners in real-world scenarios and evaluate essential skills in a realistic context.
