Collaborative learning for a truly global experience.
Our "multi-faculty" option for simulations allows you to bring together students and instructors from different classes, campuses, institutions, or networks — in the U.S. and internationally — for a shared simulation activity.
Expand your learning community
Because our simulations take place via an online platform, students do not have to be located in the same place or meet at the same time in order to engage in an experiential learning opportunity. Multi-faculty simulations are often used as learning tools to help:
- School districts wanting to engage hundreds of students from different secondary schools;
- Professors at the same institution seeking to integrate international relations and U.S. politics courses;
- Professors across disciplines collaborating to bring the unique perspectives of their students to bear on critical global issues; and
- Instructors around the world connecting in order to provide a truly international negotiation experience to their students.
Imagine the possibilities
Multi-faculty ICONS simulations are particularly valuable in achieving the following goals:
Developing Cross-Campus Collaboration
Bridge relationships between campuses, as well as between students and instructors.
Strengthening International Partnerships & Sister Schools
Provide educational activities that help students from multiple institutions interact and learn together.
Advancing Interdisciplinary Learning Activities
Bring together different subject areas, such as political science, communications, and environmental science.
Collaborating with Colleagues at Multiple Institutions
Add active learning approaches to your classes, and highlight the different perspectives of students in various locales.
Leveraging Existing Networks or Consortia
Offer new ways to engage your membership in collaboration and student engagement.

Single-Faculty Simulation Options
Are you looking to use a simulation ONLY in the context of your classroom, independent of other instructors? Not a problem! The single-faculty option is the default setting when you complete your online simulation registration. For single-faculty use simply select a simulation from our catalog, complete a registration, and you're ready to go!
