Project Management is an “Experiential Subject” – you cannot just teach it in a class-room – students have to experience the ‘thrills and spills’ of running their own projects to understand and appreciate how to plan properly. Lectures are passive for students, and case studies are static. But don’t take my word for it – read the words of other academics:

  • The KOLB learning cylcle (1984) requires learners to experience, reflect, conceptualise, and apply learning.
  • Hood (2006) states that the project management concept can be very difficult for students with little work or project experience.
  • Shtub (2013) suggests that traditional teaching using case studies and lectures cannot teach the uncertainty that is inherent in project management.

Therefore simulations help student apply knowledge and starts to build their experiences and competence.
