One very successful instructional strategy discussed at depth in this chapter is the use of simulation in the classroom. So much is made about flight simulators & 3D animated simulation of products, buildings, and other designs. One pragmatic approach to a design project is running the lesson as a firm simulation. This cooperative learning strategy focuses on individual accountability, as well as the social impacts of a firm on the design process. This is instructional strategy; therefore, the actual material you need to present in class is up to you. In Environmental Design, so many of our project-oriented concepts are in need of an instructional structure. This strategy is intended merely to simulate a real firm.
