Focuses on the key issues of urban planning practice in Asia's developing countries by describing and appraising a selection of the most significant planning studies or projects carried out in the last 20 years.

The contemporary art of simulation is discussed in this short guide. The intent of the authors is to introduce classroom simulation to a more general audience by reviewing the state of the art. Six games from a variety of subjects in secondary school curriculum are described in detail. Of particular utility to the reader is the annotated directory of selected simulation materials. (Mc)

Instructional simulation systems in higher education by R. H. R Armstrong( Book )

4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two major purposes of this book are to be an introduction to the development of instructional simulation systems in higher education and to provide a useful compendium of experimental simulation experience for those wishing to consider and utilize these and related techniques at the university level. Each paper attempts either to present a "state of the art" report on some of the important developments and strands of thinking in a particular field or to present a "case" description of the application of a technique within a specific educational sector. Most are preliminary or interim reports in that they represent summaries of ongoing research. Many of the findings relate to instructional simulation experience in the United Kingdom. Examples of simulation use in military science, international relations, urban and regional studies, government, economics, psychology, and management training are offered, as well as statements concerning the techniques of simulation and gaming as education tools.

Feedback on instructional simulation systems by R. H. R Armstrong( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this follow-up to a previous monograph on simulation systems in higher education (em 009 382), sixteen papers on communication and research into all aspects of simulation techniques for pedagogic purposes are presented. An introductory statement provides a tentative explanation for the common basis supporting and linking all simulation and gaming activity in education. The papers fall into three categories: a collection of feedback from political scientists concerning decision-making behavior; a diverse set of simulation reports with regard to planning and the environment; and material relating to classroom simulation.

Guide on simulation and gaming for environmental education by John Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among various possible pedagogical approaches which favor the integration of an environmental dimension into educational processes, gaming and simulation seem particularly suitable to environmental education. Environmental games and simulations reproduce in a simplified and didactical manner the complex nature of concrete environmental problems. The game situation can take into account various factors as well as the values, interests, and behavioral patterns of different social actions (E.G., scientists, government officials, or the general public) which are likely to contribute to the generation and solution of environmental problems. Games and simulation provide the student-players with a framework which helps them to appraise situations in a multidisciplinary perspective, reveals the importance of balancing group values and interests in the solution of environmental problems, and prepares them for efficient decision making. This guide on the design of simulation and gaming aims at providing basic practical knowledge for the purpose of stimulating specialists in charge of curricula and materials development, as well as teachers, to adapt existing games and simulations to their particular situations or to develop original materials of a similar kind. The guide comprises two parts. The first develops fundamentals of gaming and simulation design; the second provides examples of games, including a specific game devised for generating other games.
