Instructional Games & Simulations

Herridge projects often incorporate games and simulations. These can accelerate the learning of processes, new knowledge and skills, and can develop problem resolution abilities.

GAMES FOR LEARNING

Improved learning, retention and transfer of learning



 

 



 

CANAC
Train Marshalling & Release Skills
Coaching & Client Staff DevelopmentDesign & Development

    PROJECT OVERVIEW:

  • Yard personnel's train marshalling and release skills were not transferring effectively to the job.

  • Herridge designed, and coached the development of, instructional gaming that simulated 'real-life' situations for learners to apply marshalling rules and logistics introduced in the course.

  • Gaming of progressively more complex situations was staggered with formal learning.

  • Instructional gaming was motivating and tested that skills were transferred in an effective and non-threatening format.

    UNIQUE ASPECTS:

  • Games for learning is not widely used in heavy industry.

  • Testing performance was critical to ensure capability and safety on the job.
