Many business schools are utilizing simulation technologies to enhance the teaching and learning experiences for their faculty and student. Management simulations are based on realistic business situations. They provide an almost unlimited range of Virtual business environments (Vbe) for managers (and future managers) to learn about business and develop their managerial decision-making skills. Join us for this webinar where a leader in developing and teaching with simulations will discuss:
- How simulation has enhanced the learning experience for both students AND faculty
- Notable best practices and examples of top-notch simulations
- Key factors to consider when identifying the right simulation technology for you

Dr. Dan Davidson PhD, MSc, BSc, A.R.C.S.T BIO
EDIT 515 LTD
Dan Davidson has been involved in the development and presentation of computer simulation management courses since 1970. He has a particular interest in using management simulation to develop the abilities of participants to operate as a team running virtual companies in a competitive environment. Realistic simulation courses highlight the skills that individuals must acquire to participate effectively as a management team. This simulation software has also been packaged and supplied to universities for use on their own courses (including distance learning).
Dan has been actively involved in creating challenging background and start positions for teams who participate in the Global Management Challenge. This is a competition run annually in over forty countries using the software developed by EDIT 515 Ltd. Each country has a national final and the winners meet to compete in a prestigious international final held in various locations worldwide.
His career has included operating at senior management level in disparate roles including Banking as Head of Operational Research in The Royal bank of Scotland, the Scottish Health Service in charge of Information Services and Higher Education as Deputy Director of the Health Services Operational Research Unit at The University of Strathclyde. He has also been a visiting professor at the Glasgow Caledonian University in Glasgow. For many years he ran simulation courses for BDO, the world’s fifth largest accountancy organisation, at their training centre in Germany. This course was run in English to assist the participants to improve their proficiency in English, the international business language.
