What is Simulation-based Research?
Simulation refers to a situation where a student or a practitioner engages with a simulated “client” (i.e., actors, artificial intelligence technology) portraying a designed character and scenario similar to those encountered in practice. Simulation-based research can be categorized into the following two types: (1) research on simulation as a pedagogical approach in teaching professional practice, and (2) research that uses simulation as a methodology to research practice behaviours among students and professionals.
