Abstract

Druckman and Ebner carefully review a large number of studies which conclude that simulations (in all fields, not just negotiation) typically fail to live up to their promise. One quirk of the studies, however, drew their particular interest and inspired their own research: it seemed that students who designed simulations learned more than those who participated in them. Druckman and Ebner use this clue to develop a different kind of negotiation simulation – one in which the student plays the role of a teacher, and designs an exercise.
