Simulations in the classroom are an effective experiential learning tool, increasing student engagement and allowing students to build empathy with the topics they are studying.

I will present a number of tactics to better recreate the “magic circle” in the online classroom simulations, using examples from my own experience running a U.S. Foreign Policy simulation focused on the Rwandan genocide.
