Congratulations to our longstanding UNICollaboration members, colleagues and Virtual Exchange enthusiasts, Drs Rut Muniz Calderon and Maria Laura Angelini Doffo from the Universidad Católica de Valencia, Spain
“We are glad to share the release of our book and hope you find it interesting”
This textbook explores the use of simulation within the context of education and internationalisation. Simulation is broken down into its phases and these elements are discussed by experts, most of whom have long tradition in the application of simulation.
Simulation is treated with references to the specific needs of practitioners, educators and researchers in initiating and developing simulation in different fields of study, with specific reference to teacher education.
This volume focuses on presenting simulation as a means to facilitating students’ openness to complexity and development of intercultural skills through virtual exchange.
Thus, it provides educators and researchers with a conceptual and practical resource that tackles the critical role of cognitive and metacognitive complexity in the education of future global professionals through intercultural pedagogy.
By tracing the roots of simulation and outlining a framework to support professional learning through experiential-based research, this textbook will prove invaluable for teacher trainers, practitioners and researchers interested in simulation.
