Simulating conflict resolution dynamics and fostering negotiation skills

Main Article Content

Resumen

El artículo analiza el uso de simulaciones como una herramienta de aprendizaje activo y explora su idoneidad en los estudios de Relaciones Internacionales (RR. II.), que involucran a diferentes poblaciones de estudiantes. Las experiencias de negociación anteriores se utilizan para describir Game of Peace, un modelo de negociación, desarrollado por el autor, para abarcar a los estudiantes en el papel de varias facciones involucradas en una guerra civil. Al evaluar los comentarios de los estudiantes, aquí se sostiene que las simulaciones son extremadamente funcionales para los cursos de RR. II., para mejorar las habilidades de aprendizaje, fomentar las habilidades y capacidades relacionales, y para llevar las teorías y conceptos a la vida real. El artículo consta de tres partes. En primer lugar, se evalúa la literatura más reciente sobre simulaciones para reflexionar sobre la idoneidad de las simulaciones; en segundo lugar, la experiencia del Game of Peace se presenta en sus principales pasos, roles y características de interacción. Por último, sus principales resultados se utilizan para evaluar su impacto pedagógico y prever más investigaciones.
