MonsoonSIM Certification Level 1 is a comprehensive one-day training program designed to equip participants with the necessary skills to both play and facilitate MonsoonSIM. The certification training spans 8 hours, with the first half of the session dedicated to immersing attendees in the role of a player, allowing them to experience the dynamics and intricacies of the simulation firsthand. The latter half of the training focuses on developing facilitation skills, enabling participants to effectively guide and support their own students in using MonsoonSIM. By completing this certification, educators gain a solid foundation to incorporate MonsoonSIM into their teaching practices and create an engaging and interactive learning environment for their students.
Becoming a certified MonsoonSIM Facilitator does not require any prior business background, making it accessible to educators from various disciplines. Regardless of your academic background, you can acquire the necessary skills to effectively facilitate MonsoonSIM in your classroom. In terms of infrastructure, the requirements are minimal - all you need is a laptop or computer with Wi-Fi access. This allows for flexibility in delivering the simulation-based learning experience to your students, whether it's in a traditional classroom setting or through online platforms. MonsoonSIM's user-friendly interface and comprehensive training materials ensure that you have everything you need to successfully integrate the platform into your teaching approach.
What you will learn in this certification training
In the MonsoonSIM Facilitator Certification training, you will undergo a comprehensive learning experience that will equip you with the necessary skills to effectively facilitate the MonsoonSIM platform. The certification training consists of two main components: learning as a player and learning as a facilitator.
As a player, you will gain an understanding of the basics of running a simple retail, distribution, and wholesale business within the MonsoonSIM simulation. This hands-on experience will provide you with a solid foundation and practical insights into the simulation process.
Transitioning to the role of a facilitator, you will delve into the following key areas:
- Creating, running, starting, and stopping simulation sessions/games: You will learn how to set up and manage simulation sessions, giving you control over the learning experience for your students.
- Team setup: You will discover how to configure teams, allowing learners to collaborate and work together within the simulation environment. This fosters teamwork and enhances the overall learning experience.
- Business environment configuration: You will gain the ability to customize the business environment based on specific learning objectives and scenarios. This customization enables you to tailor the simulation to meet the unique needs of your students.
- Enrolling and un-enrolling learners: You will acquire the skills to manage learner enrollment, granting access to the simulation for individuals or groups of students. This allows you to effectively manage the participation of your students.
- Session saving: You will explore how to save simulation sessions, enabling you to pause, resume, or review them at a later time. This feature provides flexibility and convenience in delivering the simulation-based learning experience.
- Micro course utilization: You will understand how to leverage micro courses, which are targeted learning resources and materials that enhance the learning journey for your students. These resources provide additional support and guidance to supplement their learning.
- KPIs targets setup: You will learn how to define Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and set targets for learners to achieve. This allows for performance evaluation and goal-oriented learning, enabling students to track their progress and strive for improvement.
- Scoring matrix setup: You will gain knowledge on setting up the scoring matrix, which determines how learners' performance is assessed and scored within the simulation. This assessment mechanism helps evaluate student performance and provides valuable feedback.
- Data analytics access setup: You will be able to configure data analytics access, providing learners with the ability to analyze and interpret real-time data generated during the simulation. This cultivates data-driven decision-making skills and enhances the learning experience.
