Abstract

Through a Fit Simulation (FS) project, students were introduced to the creative aspects of technical design. Research shows that adult learners retain lessons more effectively when “they actively engage in the process [and] play a role” in their learning; resulting in an experiential learning environment through simulation (Fanning & Gaba, 2007). Simulated learning experiences promote deeper understanding through integrated and dynamic linking of multiple representations of the knowledge to be learned (van der Meij, 2006).
