While the technology available for use in classrooms has changed dramatically, the lecture continues to be the most common method of instruction. This instructional method provides a time-efficient technique of information delivery when covering several sources or points of view, provides a structure for more effective reading, and is an effective method for creating an awareness of problems or for challenging ideas taken for granted. However, it treats students as passive learners. Learning research suggests that many students improve their learning with greater involvement. Experiential teaching methods that use computer simulations or games have been used in undergraduate classes at Purdue University for a number of years. These teaching tools help provide a learning environment in which students are more active participants. Based on our experience in the undergraduate classroom, computer games are a useful complement to the lecture. The use of games improves student motivation, increases the realism of class material, provides better integration of principles, provides students with experience in dynamic analysis, and can provide a vehicle through which students can sharpen interpersonal and communication skills. While there are several strengths associated with the use of games, there are also several pitfalls. The objectives to be achieved need to be carefully defined and limited in scope to avoid the game being a source of entertainment with little
learning, plans must be made for software maintenance or updating, and the students must have an appropriate background in institutional structures, theoretical concepts, and analytical skills.
