Simulation-Action Learning (SAL)
- 144 Downloads
Theory has been described as an effort to bind together, in a systematic fashion, the knowledge that one has of some aspect of world experience. Consequently, this chapter binds together the experiences described in Chap. 6 into a theoretical framework called simulation-action learning (SAL). The purpose of SAL is to provide a phased process for teachers to build competences in design and innovation among a wide variety of student cohorts. Furthermore, SAL can be adapted to deliver relatively short continuing professional development (CPD) courses. In order to facilitate this type of learning, the chapter adopts Donald Schön’s concept of a practicum, a purposefully designed setting in which practice can be simulated to approximate a real-world scenario.
