Discussion: Simulation Training/Development Deidriaunna Priest posted Apr 22, 2020 1:57 PM Hello Class, Simulation training is considered to be one of the most effective ways of learning. It provides a realistic, immersive experience in the context of the learning job (Srivastava & Srivastava 2019). Simulation training offers visuals and scenarios that occur in real life. Most training occurs online without hands-on training. Having practical exercises will help all types of learners. Companies can save money, being that there able to assess how well their trainees are doing. HRM professionals can objectively determine the value of simulation training by getting real experiences, feedback, and retention. Providing authentic experiences allows individuals to get an idea of work functions. Reading guides and watching webinars are not beneficial to all employees. Getting feedback will enable employers to get a better understanding of needs and concerns. Being that employees are training in real-life situations, they're able to retain more information. Simulation training has significant benefits, but it also has disadvantages. Simulators can be costly due to updates and maintenance. Also, training all employees should be trained adequately on software and hardware. Having simulation training allows trainees to participate in activities within a safe environment. Learners are capable of learning things from errors. Also, getting hands-on thinking skills and effective communication will enhance real-life situations. References Arias, Raphael Gonçalves.
