Marketplace® Live Train the Trainer Seminar
Innovative Learning Solutions will host the bi-annual, free Train-the-Trainers event in Knoxville from Sunday, October 27th until Tuesday, October 29th. Dr. Ernest Cadotte, the author of the Marketplace® and Marketplace Live® simulations, will lead this training seminar for current and prospective Marketplace® instructors.
Participants will be exposed to several decision rounds of the Conscious Capitalism® simulation. Participants will be given a general overview of the simulation pedagogy, grading, and instructor software. Various learning strategies will be discussed along with tactics that have proven successful with other faculty.
In addition, attendees will be provided meals throughout the training event. There will be a fun beach volleyball game at the welcome reception on Sunday evening. This will be a great way to get to know the ILS staff, as well as some new faces in academia.
