Abstract

This panel discusses goals and educational strategies for teaching simulation in academia. Clearly, there is considerable material to cover in a single course or a sequence thereof in, say, an undergraduate program. The issue is how to motivate and empower students to analyze complex problems correctly and to prevent the pitfall of misusing the concept.
