The use of digital, Web-based simulations for education and training in the workplace is a significant, emerging innovation requiring immediate attention. A convergence of new educational needs, theories of learning, and role-based simulation technologies points to educators' readiness for e-simulations. As modern e-simulations aim at integration into blended learning environments, they promote rich experiential, constructivist learning.

Professional Education Using E-Simulations: Benefits of Blended Learning Design contains a broad range of theoretical perspectives on, and practical illustrations of, the field of e-simulations for educating the professions in blended learning environments. Readers will see authors articulate various views on the nature of professions and professionalism, the nature and roles that various types of e-simulations play in contributing to developing an array of professional capabilities, and various viewpoints on how e-simulations as an integral component of blended learning environments can be conceived, enacted, evaluated, and researched.

Review:

This book is state of the art. And I don't mean Star Trek style holodecks (which are coming) or Matrix style knowledge-downloads (good luck with that). Rather, this is where the pioneers of the industry really are. The papers gathered here honestly and thoroughly show today's risk taking, brainstorming, and realistic compromises. Here are the processes that others will be following shortly, and likely the techniques that will get formalised in the authoring tools of the future.

--Clark Aldrich, Managing Partner of Clark Aldrich Designs, United States of America

This work presents 21 chapters authored by 33 scholars and practitioners, mostly from Australia. Organized into three sections, the volume addresses theorizing the nature of design for authentic learning and e-simulations, e-simulation learning designs in action, and developing knowledge and building capacities for e-simulations. The emphasis of this book is on the effective leadership and management in the use of e-simulation, specifically in blended-learning environments in a range of professional fields, from health to business and law, from arts to engineering and science, from education and social and behavioral sciences to workplace training. Presenting both theoretical and case-based research, this volume will help all academics, trainers, and leaders in the provision of training and education to best determine how and why to use e-simulations, particularly in a blended setting.

-- Sara Marcus
