Paradoxically, role-play is an authentic activity to improve long-term learning and prepare students for future coursework or careers. Role play activities encourage students to identify solutions to case studies, resolve problems in representative scenarios , interpret theories, analyze literature and visual arts, or practice empathy by taking another person’s point of view. Through role play, students can engage in research, build “think-on-your-feet” skills, and reflect upon alternative solutions. Participants in this research-based, interactive workshop will examine the effectiveness of role-play across disciplines, analyze guidelines and resources for role-play activities, and practice how to design and implement role-play in college classrooms.
