This introductory video is part of a larger product called the “Science-Based Role Play Simulation for Engaged Decision Making – A Dam Negotiation Application.” The role-play is a seven-party, eight-person (including the small-group facilitator), multi-issue negotiation simulation concerning current and future management of dams in a coastal basin. The complete package of this simulation includes the following materials: teaching instructions, presentation slides and instructional video, table place cards for each of the seven roles, general instructions for all players (which includes a link to the web-based system dynamics model user interface), and confidential instructions for each of the eight players. The purpose of this video is to introduce the user to the role-play simulation setting and components.
