Abstract

Simulation–based learning is one kind of Discovery Learning and it is related to the learning experiences through electronic or artificial environments to apply concepts and practice skills. The success of immersive simulation is mainly measured across self-efficacy in science and collaboration in the past researches. The area of the pedagogical effects and creativity in simulation based learning remains unexplored. This chapter covers a cross-sectional study on about 559 undergraduate students who received a Discovery Enriched Curriculum in a Hong Kong University across various academic disciplines. The learning outcomes included creative self-efficacy, creative axioms, creative potentials, and learning approaches. The results showed that students received more experiences in simulation based learning had a higher level of creative self-efficacy. Second, it suggested that simulation–based learning is also related to deep learning, namely higher order learning, integrative learning and reflective learning. Third, it revealed simulation–based learning is positively correlated to discovery learning, e.g., incidental learning and learning by exploring. Implications will also be discussed.
