Questions about effective use of computer simulation for training

I was recently asked to reflect on several questions around using simulation for training, and so I responded somewhat but not too formally on my corporate blog. Click here to go to the post.

The eight questions start with a big one, "do you feel realistic simulations are effective teaching tool for improving decision making? Why or why not?". Lots of room for debate!

I certainly would be interested in your views, which you can contribute here or there.
