What Fellow Educators are Saying about the Workshop

The Train-the-Trainer Workshop not only helped me better understand the pedagogy behind the simulation, but it provided me a view from the student’s perspective. I can now reflect on what I learned and proactively address potential challenges the class may encounter as we progress through the game.

The Train-the-Trainer Workshop has helped me learn to be a better coach, providing tips and techniques that I plan to put into practice starting next semester. As educators we need to incorporate more learning exercises, like simulations, into our curriculum. Marketplace is fabulous because it compels students to look at managing business and all of its complexities, well preparing them for the real world.

Just want to say thanks to you, Ernie, and the entire Marketplace team! This was the best instructional seminar I have ever been to in my 26 years as a faculty member! I have already recommended it to a colleague, and am looking forward to using the Bikes simulation this spring.

I love the TTT! I think everybody should do it. You think you know the game, but when you play it yourself as a team member, all of a sudden the problems your students may encounter become more understandable.

Marketplace Simulations’ Train-the-Trainer Workshop has truly been a quality use of my time. Whether you’re brand new to the simulation or have had some exposure to it, it was absolutely worthwhile. I would even consider coming back and doing it again. Every time you play this game you learn more and more.
