This chapter concerns the role and purpose of the instructor. It uses the acronym A.I. as in “Almighty Instructor,” even though an ideal simulation would have its instructor act only as a largely passive observer. The chapter notes that it is entirely possible and even likely that the instructor need be little more than an observer. For the most part, most simulations do run themselves. But there are still things that require attention and, on occasion, intervention. The chapter then explicates a class session which allows students to reflect upon their simulation experiences once the game itself concludes. Student postmortems often provide not just a summary, but often the epitome, of student learning experiences.
