Learning the Scientific Research Process through Simulation

The effectiveness of using simulation as an instructional strategy for teaching and learning the scientific research process was explored in this study. A study within a study design utilized a graduate and undergraduate class to investigate the effectiveness of two memory techniques: rote vs. story telling. Participation in an authentic research study indicated that simulation was an effective approach for learning as demonstrated by students’ mastery of knowledge of research components.
