This panel presents an opportunity for the audience to hear of three different approaches to educator development through games and simulations. The three projects took different approaches to address a similar problem; that of learning about the culture and the practice of the profession of teaching. During this panel each project team will briefly outline the rationale for their approach and summarise the lessons they have learnt so far. The panel audience will be provided with some prepared questions designed to facilitate critical appraisal from the audience and to allow the audience to suggest future directions for this type of research. There will also be opportunity for general comments and questions from the audience before the chair provides a brief summation of the outcomes of this panel.
