Dan Smith, professor, owner and president of Capsim, ensures that professors have access to every tool imaginable to help make the teaching of the simulations a positive experience. His experience as a professor adds unique insights into the best way to achieve learning goals and to enhance the Capsim simulation experience.
In addition to one-to-one training demonstrations and unlimited assistance and support, an instructive video called Tips and Techniques is emailed to every professor and instructor on a weekly basis.
Dan hosts these videos. He chooses a subject or challenging area of the simulations such as sales forecasting, competitive advantage, or debriefing, and spells out, in great detail, how to teach it better, explain it better or deliver it better. As an active professor, you also have access to the entire video archive library of these teaching tips.
If you are currently not receiving these videos and you have an active course, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
teaching tips. They're a great addition to the website. Dan's straightforward, easy-to-follow explanations have been very helpful in preparing both lectures and debriefs for my classes. I particularly like his suggestions on the most appropriate point in the simulation to introduce or reinforce these topics. Please keep them coming!
