Abstract

The showcase will demonstrate the use of a computer based game simulation in an MBA in Health Care Management Program to improve critical thinking. The simulation will also be used as a foundation for its use in management online courses through a Blackboard-Discussion Board format. A game simulation workshop based on a simulation developed by “ExperiencePoint Inc.” was used to develop critical thinking decision-making skills. Participants used computers and team participation to reach goals contained in the game simulation. The use of game simulation is important because as traditional and online programs in health care management/administration continue to grow, it is important to ensure that these students experience opportunities to learn critical thinking skills.
