Just like some of the Cesim business simulation games experts and staff, Manisha Kumari, Curriculum Developer at Aston University, discovered her enthusiasm for business simulations back in her student years. With previous first hand student experience in business simulations, Manisha took on the role to redesign the Business Game Module at Aston Business School. Let's find out how she revamped the module with an employability focus to boost the job placement rate of Aston Business School students.
One of the hot topics of the education industry currently is the learning assessment of students and how to measure whether business school students truly derive that much touted value from their oftentimes expensive studies. After all, one of the hardest jobs teachers have is to ensure that they aren't merely reciting lecture slides, but pass on and create valuable knowledge in an increasingly demanding environment. Notice that I intentionally used the word 'create' in addition to 'pass on', to highlight the growing importance of collaborative learning in all disciplines, where knowledge is indeed created by the discussion amongst students as much as by the educator's contribution.
