This study aimed to develop a set of design principles for case-based procedural simulation and improve them by using formative research methodology. Major principles were identified by reviewing the literature, and additional principles were developed while a simulation program for this study was being made. The simulation program for the needs analysis procedure was implemented and participants' responses regarding the strengths, weaknesses, and improvements of those principles were collected and analyzed. While strengths include ‘learning by case’, ‘authentic participation’, and ‘natural feedback’, the areas for improvement relate to ‘more concrete feedback’, ‘saving learners' input’, ‘learner control’, ‘program orientation’, and ‘ways of presenting a situation’. Overall, the study provided a set of comprehensive and detailed principles that can help to design a procedural simulation.
