Apprenticeship simulation is an affordable way to introduce elements of apprenticeship type of learning in a classroom, be it at a university campus or in online education. Apprenticeship simulation is based on using modern technology to implement a very simple principle of:

substituting a textual description of a business case by a set of multimedia sources

thus creating an environment that represent business reality in a more realistic way.

Problems to solve

  • Acquiring tacit knowledge on Ways of Thinking and Practicing
  • Difficult to teach/learn outside real practice in the university settings
  • Fragmented knowledge in the university programs

An approach to solution

  • Use multimedia for augmented presentation of real life organizations in the students projects
  • Simulate apprenticeship situation rather than simulating an organization (the former is much more affordable)
  • Same case in different courses
