The following toolkit has been designed to assist convenors of Model United Nations Conferences. The scenarios and teaching plans contained within this toolkit have been researched and tested throughout the life of the research project “Is participation in technology enhanced Model United Nations Conferences the employability skills solution for learners?” This project was supported by the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching as a seed grant. In designing this toolkit the research team has placed a strong emphasis on reinforcing the employability skills that the learner can acquire through a Model UN simulation based learning experience.
Within this toolkit educators will find ideas, resources, and scenarios to successfully execute their own Model United Nations Conferences. Each scenario has been crafted in a way that offers educators an insight into scenario design, which will enable the educator to design their own scenarios in the future. The scenarios contained within this guide were designed using the software platform ‘The Global Strategic Operations Centre.’ That being said, the scenarios are of a nature that they may be utilised without the technological enhancement.
