The article argues that problem-based learning, through the creative use of simulations, can raise student engagement and enhance student performance. Specifically, it discusses two simulations that were used in a recent European Union Politics course, one involving a Council Simulation of the Chocolate Directive and the other a simulation of the European Parliament. The simulations were assessed through a combination of reflective student essays, pre-post tests and other in-class student work.
