Teach the Teachers in Simulation

This interactive, multimedia lab presentation will focus on using simulation and cover introductory steps on programming. The workshop will focus mainly on the approach to building a useful educational simulation tool and will provide helpful guidelines to creating a catered program. Hands on experts and experienced simulation EM faculty will be available in small groups to specifically help create programs for the instructors throughout the workshop. This is not a workshop on how to program as this would be too cumbersome and varying significantly from each simulation model.
