When people talk about education and learning, you automatically think about notepads and the classroom. Over a number of years The Simex Series has designed training environments that push participants to the edge of realism, but does that enhance the opportunity for learning or provide distraction to learning participants?

Key learnings:

  • Training and exercising environments that add value and help develop competence as well as confidence.
  • Understanding the benefit of realism and balancing this with exercise and learning objectives.
  • Assessing emerging technologies and their value for training and exercising.
  • Showing the benefits of engaging members of the public in exercises and building community resilience.
