Abstract

This Special Issue explores assessment and evaluation of simulation-based learning in higher education and professional development from theoretical, methodological, and empirical perspectives. By bringing together nine studies of different disciplines and professions, we aim to increase the knowledge about the design, use and effectiveness of simulations across communities. The nine contributions are critically discussed to identify potentials of simulations across professions and point out weaknesses that need further attention. In this joint endeavour, we reflect on whether and in which situations simulations are effective ways to support professional learning and development.
