Randall Kindley Visit and a University Wide Situational Learning initiative

The success of both eSims made it possible for me to organize the visit to Adelaide of Dr. Randall Kindley to teach Scenario-based Learning to a wide audience from all three educational sectors K-12, VET and HE. This subsequently led to a successful application for $100,000 in joint funding for situational learning from the University’s Learning and Teaching Development Grant Scheme and the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematical Sciences. 

This funded an initiative to develop an online situational learning cluster across the University and to promote further online role-play simulations and scenario-based learning. Meanwhile the Situational Learning team from here and the USA were presenting on the subject 
nationally and internationally.

Dr Randall Kindley died unexpectedly from a heart attack in May 2006. The Online Learning Team in the CLPD have missed him and his creative energy a great deal.
