Different state approaches to providing simulated work-based learning.

The National Center for Innovation in Career Technical Education examined simulated work-based learning project sites located in five states—Alabama, Kansas, Montana, North Carolina, and West Virginia—using simulation as an instructional tool. Simulated work-based learning can help enhance programs of study with real-world experiences, expanding opportunities for learners that are geographically disconnected from employers or face barriers such as lack of resources, transportation and insurance to participate in worksite experiences.
