Managing Downtime in Scenario-Based Training

Simulation training is great--but how do you keep the rest of the class busy when only one or two at a time can play?

The second alternative is to keep the group intact even while operating fewer stations. While students are waiting their turn, they can be writing an incident report about the station they just finished, or writing a crash report and filling out a traffic citation for a set-up accident (two cars positioned as if they had collided with written information provided about the drivers and their statements).

With a little imagination, you can find ways to give your students the benefit of experiencing simulation training without having to endure waiting around with nothing to do until it's finally their turn to play.
