Upcoming Train-the-Trainers Events: Marketplace® Live and Retail Management

By | February 20, 2013

Marketplace® Live in-person Train-the-Trainers Event

Innovative Learning Solutions will host the bi-annual, free Train-the-Trainers event in Knoxville from Monday, May 13th until Wednesday, May 15th. Dr. Ernest Cadotte, the author of the Marketplace® and Marketplace Live® simulations, will lead this training seminar for current and prospective Marketplace instructors.

With the assistance of the ILS sales, development, and support teams, participants are exposed to several decision rounds of the Conscious Capitalism® simulation. As well, participants are given a general overview of the simulation pedagogy, grading, and instructor software. We discuss various learning strategies and tactics that have proven successful with other faculty.


In addition, attendees will be provided meals throughout the training event. There is also a fun beach volleyball game at the welcome reception on Sunday evening. This is a great way to get to know the ILS staff, as well as some new faces in academia.

Retail Management Game Online Training Event

If we garner enough interest in a Retail Management Game training event, it will likely take place in the summer. The author of the simulation, Dr. Dale Achabal, will lead this training seminar for current and prospective Retail Management instructors via Webex web conferencing software.

Participants will be exposed to several decision rounds of the Retail Management Game, which has recently been revised. Additionally, Achabal will cover the pedagogy of the Retail Management Game and give an overview of the simulation decisions. We will discuss students roles of responsibilities and breakdown the decisions by quarter.
