Innovative Learning Solutions will be hosting the bi-annual, FREE Train-the-Trainer event in Knoxville, Tennessee from Monday, October 27 until Wednesday, October 29th. Dr. Ernest Cadotte, the author of the Marketplace® and Marketplace® Live business simulations, will lead this training seminar for current or prospective Marketplace instructors.
With the help of the development and support teams, participants are exposed to several decision rounds of the Conscious Capitalism® simulation. In addition, participants are given a general overview of the simulation pedagogy, grading, and instructor software. There will also be a discussion of various learning strategies and tactics that have proven successful with other faculty.
Attendees will be provided meals throughout the training event. There is also a fun beach volleyball game at the Welcome Reception and Dinner on Monday evening. This is a great way to get to know the Marketplace staff, as well as some new faces in academia. The seminar will begin on Tuesday morning and lasts until late afternoon on Wednesday.
If you are interested in participating, or would like more information on this event, please email Susan Fredericks at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +1-865-522-1946.
