Principles for Design of Simulated Cases in Teaching Enterprise Modelling
Apprenticeship Simulation (AS) is a form of case-based learning where the students follow a virtual expert who selects and hands to them information sources with which they should work. A case as presented to the students can be quite complex, consisting of numerous types of diverse sources, including recorded interviews and links to real-world dynamic sources such as web pages. A teacher who designs an AS case needs to decide on the structure of the case presentation, including which sources should be used and how they and associated tasks should be presented to the students. In this paper, we present a set of principles for the design of AS case presentations. The principles are based on our experiences in applying AS in four courses in the area of enterprise modelling.
