This chapter examines the use of simulations as a tool to support learning and enhance engagement of international direct entrant students. We examine whether and how conflict evident in team working affects both learning and engagement, and more fully probe the pedagogic potential of computer-based simulations, assisting institutions in achieving student satisfaction, in addition to other student learning and value outcomes.
