Looking for a game changer for your next class? Thinking about integrating a simulation into your coursework?

Train-the-Trainer is a two-and-a-half-day event that will show you the ins and outs of using Marketplace marketing and business simulations as an educational teaching tool.

This event will:

  • Invite you to experience, first-hand, what it's like to play a simulation as a student. 
  • Show you the value of the pedagogy behind our simulations and what makes them so successful as a teaching tool. 
  • Learn how to add a simulation into your coursework. 
  • Help you evaluate Marketplace as a tool for experiential learning and as a vehicle in advancing education across the world.

Who should attend?

New, prospective, and even experienced instructors that want their students to get the most out of a Marketplace learning experience.

As you explore the capabilities of Marketplace, you'll be first introduced to the software from the students' perspective. This will enable you to see the benefits and challenges each student faces while playing the game, as well as show you the effectiveness of simulation-based learning.

The author, Dr. Ernest Cadotte, of Marketplace® Simulations will then discuss the underlying pedagogy of the software and share his best practices for integrating a simulation into your course curriculum.

Featured Simulation:

train the trainers seminar

Faculty will have the opportunity to experience the newest simulation by Marketplace – Venture Strategy Bikes! This dynamic simulation will challenge the workshop participants to develop a new, niche market - 3D printed, carbon fiber bikes. These bikes are light, strong, and very affordable. And, they can be customized to each customer’s physical and performance requirements. Another game changer is that 3D printers enable made-to-order production. Therefore, there is no need to hold inventory anywhere in the supply chain, and the costs to finance and store it are eliminated. You will have two-and-a-half-days, five simulated business quarters, to grow your new business into a profitable, self-sufficient, international company. Are you up to the challenge? You will experience the game from the students’ perspective. All aspects of modern business will be covered, including:
  • Brand Design
  • Pricing
  • Ad Design & Media Placement
  • Internet Marketing
  • Sales Force Management
  • Human Resources
  • Production
  • Distribution
  • Cash Flow

Join us for this fun and engaging workshop. Meet the support team of Marketplace, ask questions, and hear tips from seasoned Marketplace educators
